Julia Elizabeth's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy a clean cook-stove kit.

Julia Elizabeth's story

Julia is from the city of Villa Hayes. She is married and the mother of a family. She earns her living selling crafts to help support her household.

She uses a gas stove which she now wants to replace with a clean cook-stove kit from Fundación Paraguaya's program as cooking with gas is very costly.

She is requesting this loan so she can buy a clean cookstove kit made up of a set of pots and an induction plate.
