Chicas Al Poder Group's story

This committee was formed in the city of Asunción through the union of friends and neighbors. All of them came together with the purpose of helping their families and giving them a better quality of life. They are in their second loan cycle, and they all work to improve themselves and get ahead, and in this way continue supporting their families and give them what they couldn’t have.

One of them is Cinthia, who works as a hairdresser and manicurist. She says that due to COVID-19 her business was affected and she couldn’t continue working as usual, nor was she able to generate enough incomes to cover the basic needs of her family. However, she does not give up and continues looking for a way to give a decent life to her loved ones and overcome the daily obstacles that come her way.

She says that she gives all of herself to get ahead and slowly get her business back on track so that one day she can start working again as usual.

She is requesting this loan to buy supplies for her salon, restock her business and continue offering her services. She will buy hair dyes, creams, shampoo, rinses, and others. She is grateful for the opportunity given to stay with the group and continue fighting for her goals.

Notes: she is the only person that appears in the photo but this is a group loan. It was not possible to get them all together due to the overcrowding and restrictions with COVID-19.

In this group: Lilian, Cinthia, Francisca, Valentina, Susana, Ruth, Loida, Natalia, Patricia, Bernardina, Agustina, Blanca, Blanca, Amada
