Mburucuya Poty Group's story

Mburucuya Poty is a group made up of 12 women, which is in its first loan cycle in the women's committee program, where they all struggle to get ahead and overcome difficulties, especially what they suffered due to COVID-19.

Victorina is one of the entrepreneurs who stands out for her consistency and perseverance in the field of cuisine. She works making and selling chipas, which are a typical Paraguayan food eaten all year round. She sells them in a very busy section in her locality. For years, she has spent her time in this business, which has generated the daily sustenance for her household and the possibility of an education for her children. However, she says that her business was affected by the pandemic, but she seeks the way to be able to get it up and going.

She asks for this loan to purchase ingredients to make her chipas, such as starch, cheese, eggs, and other products.

Note: There is only one person in the photo, but this is a group loan. A group photo was not possible to prevent the gathering of people due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
