Twenty-one women from the city of Caaguazú have united in order to work together, help each other, and manage to get ahead by doing so. They are head-of-household women who want to help their children get ahead.
Maria Antonia is the President of the group and works in food sales (empanadas, Paraguayan soup, croquettes). She works day after day, starting very early in the morning, which is when she prepares her food. She says that she helps her family through her work, and that is how they get ahead. Her dream is to be able to have her own business location, so that she may offer her customers more comfort.

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.
