The Pyapy Mbarete committee developed from the effort and help of another committee that worked in the same region. The present committee is from the City of San Lorenzo, and its principal object is the growth of each of its 14 women.

Anatolia, the group's president, is 55 years old and lives in the City of Capiata, near San Lorenzo. She is an enterprising and innovative woman, with a good predisposition and is very active within the committee.

Anatolia is a very humble but determined person. Each day she attempts to obtain income to maintain her family. She does artisan embroidery that is unique in design and texture. Anatolia's customers are numerous but she wants to increase the number to expand her income and give her a tranquil old age without future preoccupations.

Anatolia is requesting a loan to buy cloth, thread, stretchers, and needles. She hopes she can count on the help of investors from Kiva and the Fundacion Paraguaya.

All the committee members are striving and deserving of help for their dedication and desire to overcome the poverty in which they live.

About Fundación Paraguaya

Fundación Paraguaya is a financially self-sustaining social enterprise that promotes entrepreneurship in urban and rural areas through microfinance, education programs, and more. Its focus on agriculture has helped many farmers boost their crop yields. And a number of other borrowers have taken out loans to start and grow social businesses that have helped deliver eyeglasses, medicines and other helpful services in their local communities.

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.
