Santa Catalina Group's story

Santa Catalina is the name of this group composed of 12 women from the city of Paraguarí. They are in the first cycle in Fundación Paraguaya’s enterprising women’s program. They joined this program challenged by their families because they want to provide them with a better, privation-free future. Ignacia is a hardworking, self-sacrificing woman. She starts very early in the morning because she sells milk and has to bring her product to her customers’ tables in time for breakfast. One of her goals is to have a large store so that she doesn’t have to go out to sell her wares any more. She asks for the loan to buy milk in quantity so that she can have more available in stock. She is grateful for the opportunity she gets from the Fundación and from Kiva.
