Mujeres Emprendedoras De Cerrito Group's story

The Mujeres Emprendedoras de la Ciudad de Benjamín Aceval Cerrito Chaco Communal Bank is in their sixth cycle. Most of the members sell clothes in bazaars. Others depend upon what they are good at doing and the work tools they have to do various jobs like selling food, selling fruit, vegetables, natural remedies, and others.

Thanks to the loan from the Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva they wish to improve themselves more each time. They want to keep advancing by working with dignity.

That is how Nilda A. is. She sells food that she prepares herself. She makes things like empanadas, breaded meat cutlets, Paraguayan soup (corn flour with fat, milk, and cheese), and others. She also makes natural fruit juices like pineapple and orange. She used the loan to buy the ingredients she uses to make her food.

In this group: Nilda, Elizabeth, Pelagia, Felicita , Juliana, Petrona, Blanca , Juliana, Teresa, Carmen, Liliana, Fatima, Mirian, Maria, Pabla, Clotilde, Marina, Gladyz
