A loan of $1,950 helped a member to buy shoes, pillows, clothing, and sheets.


San Cayetano Group's story

Patrocinia G. is the president of the group which works in retail. They want to invest their money to purchase clothing, shoes, sheets, pillows, and more in order to increase the variety of products they sell and increase their profits. Patrocinia is very happy with her current loan, because thanks to the Paraguayan Foundation (Kiva Field Partner), she has considerably improved her income.


This group of women meets in the city of Paraguarí to discuss their Women's Entrepreneur Group and they all seem very interested in the benefits provided by the program. The group is named San Cayetano because he is the patron saint of their community. The group is currently in its sixth loan cycle. All the members are very active individuals who want to invest their loan in their respective businesses and goals.

In this group: Patrocinia, Mirna, Benigna, Bernarda, Griselda, Cynthia, Carmen, Mirna, Sonia, Gloria, Silvia, Maria
