Las Divinas De Mbocajaty Group's story

The group Las Divinas de Mbocajaty is in the poverty elimination program, where they all struggle for a better quality of life for their families. Sonia stands out among them. She works making and selling chipas and cocido. The first is a traditional food which is eaten at all times of the year, and the second is a tea made of yerba mate. She makes her products every day and then sells them as a street vendor. She says that, through her work, she generates the means to be able to get her family ahead.

She asks for this loan to be able to purchase supplies to make her chipas and cocidos, such as starch, cheese, eggs, butter, sugar, and herbs. She is grateful for the opportunity to be able to continue with her work as she has been doing.
