Las Azucenas Group's story

This group is made up of friends and neighbors in the city of Encarnación. They are hardworking women who fight to be able to improve themselves and give their loved ones something better. Additionally, they are in the elimination of poverty program.

Claudia is one of them. Through her effort and ceaseless work, and by means of making and selling sweets and crafts, she earns a living in a worthy and honest way. She has been in this line of work for some time now, and she has a customer base in the neighborhood because she is well-known. This work generates income for her and for her family.

She is asking for this loan to be able to buy ingredients for making her sweets, such as flour, eggs, and shortening, and also to buy fabric, thread, and other items for crafts.

She is grateful for the chance that she has to be able to continue with her work and, in this way, to keep helping her family.
