A loan of $1,550 helped a member to buy cheese buns to sell.

Caacupé Group's story

This committee has 13 members who are from the city of Encarnación. The committee members have experience working as a group as they have been working together for months. They meet every week to share stories, chat and find out what has been happening within the group.

One of the members of this group is 29-year-old Edit. She lives with her partner Juan, who is a builder, and they have six children who are their reason for working hard. Edit's business is selling cheese buns and she has been in this business for a long time. She tells us that she would like to have her own sales premises so that she can help her husband to make income for their household. The money that she earns isn't enough to start carrying out the work that she would like to do and so she joined her neighborhood committee so that she could use Fundación Paraguaya's help in starting the work that she wants to carry out.

Edit is requesting a loan to buy cheese buns to resell. This will enable her to take a step closer to fulfilling her dream.
