A loan of $3,625 helped a member buy chickens.

Santa Lucia Group's story

The Santa Lucia Communal Bank was formed on November 17th, 2008, with 18 women. They are all friends and neighbors. They are working in their fifth cycle, and they are all very happy with the program. They work at different activities like selling fruits and vegetables, selling meat, selling sweets, selling large baskets, and selling charcoal, etc.

Justina is requesting a loan to buy chickens. She previously did other work, but because it did not go well for her, she wants to work selling chicken. She wishes to establish a business selling slaughtered chickens. At first she would sell to the neighborhood businesses. Then, she wants to have her own henhouse to raise, fatten, and sell the chicken herself. This will leave her with greater income.

She is grateful for the opportunity of the loan offered by the Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva, and she promises to devote herself to the maximum in her work.
