San Francisco Group's story

This group is called San Francisco and is in its 20th cycle of the women's committee program. The group has 20 members who are mostly mothers looking for a way to better themselves and provide improved living conditions to their families. They are also part of the poverty elimination program.

One of the members is Mariana, who works making and selling cheese bread, a traditional Paraguayan food which is eaten all year long. Mariana says she has dedicated customers who always buy from her, since her bread is very tasty and popular with customers.

Through her work, Mariana supports her family and aims to give them all she never had, so that they do not want for anything.

She is requesting this loan to buy ingredients to make cheese bread such as starch, anise, eggs, Paraguay cheese, and corn flour.
