San Expedito Group's story

This communal banking group is in its third loan cycle. Each group member has her own micro-business where she works and through which she looks for a way to grow and to offer a better quality of life to her family. All of these women are also part of the program for the elimination of poverty.

Monica is one of the group members. She works making and selling "chipas." She comments that chipas are a traditional Paraguayan cheese bread that is eaten all year long. She is very good at what she does, and for that reason she has an established customer base. She comments that she is looking to be able to grow and improve in order to continue supporting her family.

She is asking for a loan in order to buy ingredients to continue making chipas, such as starch, cheese, eggs, butter, and other products in order to continue with her work.
