Koe Pyahu is the name of an excellent group of women established in the city of Villa Elisa, thanks to one of the members of the group who contacted the consultant in a weekly meeting that they had in the area in order to find out about the work of the Committee of Women Entrepreneurs. Once she was well-informed about the program she was able to connect the 16 women who are now comfortably working already in their third cycle, together and supportive within the program.

Sonia is one of these women. She works every day in her little ice cream shop. She tells us that through this work she can maintain her home and give her family all that they need in order to have a decent life without hardships like those she went through. She is known as a woman entrepreneur who is not afraid of work; all that she does is for her family.

She is asking for a loan in order to buy ice cream, of different flavors, with which she may have more variety to be able to offer to her customers, as we are in the very hot season and it is when she has more sales.

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.
