In Yaguarón some women get together to capitalize their businesses, and others meet to launch productive businesses. The meetings are coordinated so that the members can familiarize themselves with the program. The program has been very fruitful for them, and the benefits offered keep them interested.
The committee carries the name "Peguajhó" because all the members are from the company of the same name.
Through this enterprise, the ties between the women have been strengthened. Currently, they are in their fifteenth cycle with excellent rating. The committee is made up of 20 enterprising women who put forth the best of themselves to increase their incomes and therefore offer the best to their respective families. All the members are strong women who have invested their loans into their respective businesses.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
