Las Triunfadoras Group's story

The LAS TRIUNFADORAS committe are in their fifth communal bank loan cycle; they manage a line of credit that ranges from 100,000 to 1.000.000 guaranís. They comment at each follow-up that they struggle daily to continue forward. The daily routine of many of them consists of rising at 5:20am every day, they go to the city of Clorinda (Argentina). This is the case of Nancy, who sells articles for the home. She distributes these among her fellow committee members and among other neighbors, who are her customers; they pay weekly for the merchandise she provides. Those who are members of the committee this cycle comment that they are happy to have the opportunity to undertake their activities again. They are infinitely grateful to KIVA and to Fundación Paraguaya for the opportunity they have been given.
