Virgen De Guadalupe Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to refinance her debt, and to buy ingredients to make chipas [cheesy buns], such as starch, cheese, eggs, shortening and other products.


Virgen De Guadalupe Group's story

This group, called Virgen de Guadalupe, was formed through a union of friends and neighbors from the city of Ybycuí. They are seeking a way to improve their quality of life and that of their loved ones. They are in the sixth cycle of the committee of women program.

Bernarda is one of the members of the group. She says that through her sale of chipas [cheesy buns] she has helped support her home and family. A chipa is a typical Paraguayan food that is eaten throughout the year.

Bernarda says her business and sales were affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and the complete quarantine that was imposed. She wasn't able to work in her normal manner and couldn't generate the income she needs. She seeks this loan to refinance her debt, and to buy ingredients to make chipas, such as starch, cheese, eggs, shortening and other products.

Note that only one person appears in the photo, although this is a group loan. A group photo wasn't possible due to the restriction on gatherings of people due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
