Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Comite Tembiapo Porâ Group's story

Comité Tembiapo Porâ is the name of this group, formed March 6 2008 thanks to which the current General Director Luz Teresa Giménez contacted the assessor to let her know that she had united 16 women who met working with the Entrepreneural Women's Committee Programme now in its fourth loan cycle. All the members of the group are very happy to be working together and supporting each other.

The loan amount for each member is 500,000 Gs which will be used for diverse activities such as selling Ao-po´i [light embroidered cotton cloth], selling foodstuffs, selling hardware, selling glass displays, clothesmaking, buying merchandise for resale (rice, sugar, noodles, cheese, breads, herbs, etc.), selling library items, hairstyling and manicure and pedicure accessories, selling lingerie, etc.
Todas ellas están muy conformes trabajando con la Fundación Paraguaya.
