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

A loan helped to buy raw materials, such as starch, cheese, eggs, lard, salt and other products.

Villa Elisa Group's story

The Group is made up of women, who are the heads of their family. They have an enterprising spirit and the desire to get ahead in life. Liz stands out amongst them, she makes a living from making and selling "Chipas" which is a traditional Paraguayan savoury bread that is eaten at this time of year. She decided to become part of the Group, she saw it as an opportunity to continue to develop, particularly as the Group is part of a poverty elimination scheme. Liz is applying for a loan to buy raw materials to make her "Chipas" including starch, cheese, eggs, lard, salt and other products. Note: Only one person appears in the picture, however this is a Group loan. The Covid-19 pandemic means that gatherings of people are to be avoided and so it was not possible to take a picture of the Group.
