A loan helped a member to purchase meat, chicken, condiments, vegetables, and other products for her business.


Ruta Vi Group's story

The committee was formed by uniting friends and neighbors in the city of Encarnación. These are women entrepreneurs who are struggling to achieve a better quality of life for their families. Each member has her own enterprise in which she works to generate income for her family.

Silvia is a member and she sells fast foods. Silvia notes that she makes the meals herself, every day, starting early in the morning. She organized this committee for the purpose of improving their quality of life and that of their families by everyone working together.

Silvia notes that during the crisis the world is now experiencing, the propagation of the Covid-19 pandemic has impeded their efforts to work normally and generate the means to help their families, This has had consequences for her business. That is why she needs to be able to invest the loan in her business, to advance it.

Silvia is requesting the loan to be able to inject capital into her enterprise and purchase inputs needed for making meals, including meat, chicken, condiments, vegetables, and other products.
