Virgen Del Pilar Group's story

The Virgen de Pilar [Virgin of Pilar] group, made up of very hardworking and entrepreneurial women, are in their 15th loan cycle of the Committee of Women program. Each one has a goal of growing and improving their own ventures they undertake.

One of the members is Flavia who is the owner of a notions store. She says that 9 years ago she took the initiative to buy underwear and socks with the first loan that she received through the Fundación [Paraguaya]. She began traveling around to houses on her bicycle, selling her products in a big bag. Then, after four years of continuing to work, she was able to establish herself at home. She currently has a store where she tends to her customers. She has clothes for women, men, and children. Each loan helped her grow in her work. She is a very self-sacrificing person who fights to better her living conditions.

She is applying for this loan to be able to invest in the purchase of various products to sell in her notions store such as various articles of clothing, underwear, and other products so that she can selling and, at the same time, continue helping her family through her work.
