Divino Niño Group's story

The Divino Niño Committee has been working with loans from Fundación Paraguaya for one year. The group has 20 members and we were able to speak with 2 of them.

Sra. Julia G. has been operating a small kiosk from home for the past six months with the help of her husband. She sells candy, sodas, juices, frozen foods, etc. With her loan, she hopes to expand her small business.

Sra. Margarita R. is a self-sacrificing woman. She sells hamburgers, empanadas, and drinks in the early evenings until very late at night. She also sells clothing in the neighborhoods around her home.
