8 De Diciembre Group's story

This group is called "8 de Diciembre". It was formed in the city of Ybycuí, with a group of friends and neighbors from the city. They set a goal to grow, not only financially, but also as people so that their loved ones have everything they need. They are a part of the poverty elimination program, where they all work hard to overcome poverty.

Gregoria is one member of the group, who earns a living preparing and selling "chipas", a typical Paraguayan food. With her work, she helps her family and seeks to give them a life with everything they need. Gregoria is a hard working person who starts her job early every day and sells what she produces. Her goal is to continue bettering herself and, in this way, continue helping her family's economic situation.

She is requesting a loan to buy raw materials that she needs to continue making her products such as starch, cheese, egg, butter, and other ingredients.
