Comite Las Amigas Group's story

They are currently in their 13th loan cycle as part of the Fundacion Paraguaya Women’s Entrepreneuship Program. With each loan cycle, they all participate in training workshops where they learn how to save, budget and market their businesses. They use their loans to expand their businesses, which involve selling clothing and furniture, and running manicure salons and food stands where they sell “chipas," a traditional Paraguayan cheese bread.
