Mujeres Activas Group's story

This group, named Mujeres Activas, was formed by friends and neighbors from the city of Encarnación. They seek a way to improve their quality of life and that of their loved ones. They are in their 23rd loan cycle of the women's committee program. They are also part of the poverty elimination program.

Ramona is one of the group members. She works making and selling chipas [cheese bread] in her own store. Chipa is a traditional Paraguayan food that is consumed throughout the year. Ramona says that her work has enabled her to get her family ahead and give them a decent life without hardships. She says also that due to the pandemic crisis and the total quarantine in the country, she was left without products and with few sales.

She is requesting this loan to be able to stock her store with all types of products including fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy products and more so that she can stock up and continue with her work.
