San Jose Poty Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy ingredients to make the cheese buns she sells, including starch, cheese, eggs, shortening and other ingredients.

San Jose Poty Group's story

The group called San Jose Poty is in the seventh cycle of the committee of women program. Each member has a business through which she generates the means to help support her family.

One of them is Justina who works making and selling chipas [cheese buns], a typical Paraguayan food that is eaten throughout the day. Justina is a hardworking person who fights for her family. She says that through her work she has been able to give them what they need.

Justina mentions that due to the Covid-19 pandemic she hasn't been able to work normally, which has affected both her income and her business. Nevertheless, she seeks a way to improve and restart her business. She seeks this loan to buy ingredients to make cheese buns, such as starch, cheese, eggs, shortening and other ingredients.

Note that only one person is in the photo although this is a group loan. A group photo wasn't possible due to the social distancing requirements during this Covid-19 pandemic.
