The Women’s Committee by the name of Kuña Pukavy was formed this year, and with hard work they are already in their second loan cycle. Today they all work together as a supportive group within foundation’s group for women entrepreneurs. In addition to each one’s independent work, they have also developed joint businesses in order to raise funds to have working capital within the group and, at the same time, to help each other financially support their families.

Juatina’s story is very moving. She works selling all types of food, like empanadas, sandwiches, and other things. She says that she has attracted her customers thanks to her good food. She would like to be able to continue her work which is why she asked for this loan which is for the purchase of beef, chicken, condiments, and other things. She thanks the Fundación for the opportunity it’s given her.

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.
