Virgen De Caacupe Group's story

There is a total of 20 women in the group who have the desire to work in a united and constant way so that they can improve their families' living conditions. They formed the group with the goal of being constant in their activities from day to day and also of being able to feel proud of achieving their objectives through perseverance.
One of them is Juana, who works making and selling chipas - a typical Paraguayan dish that is eaten at any time. She is a hardworking person who joined the group with the aim of improving her situation and generating the means to help her family through her work.
She is requesting this loan to buy supplies to make her chipas such as: cornstarch, cheese, eggs, butter, salt, and other ingredients. She is grateful for the opportunity she has received to continue with her enterprise as she has been doing.
