Santa Ana Group's story

The group called Santa Ana is in its loan cycle number 3 in the women's committee program. They established as goals to help each other and, with this, to be able to give their families better living conditions.

One of them is Daisy, who is one of them and works selling cakes and chipas, which is a traditional Paraguayan food. She says that, thanks to everything she makes being very delicious, she has already established a customer base which always places orders with her. With her work, she has been able to get ahead and pay for the household necessities.

She asks for this loan to be able to purchase supplies for her sales, supplies to make her products such as starch, cheese, eggs, butter, flour, sugar, and other supplies. She is grateful for the opportunity she is receiving to be able to continue with her sales as she has been doing.
