Cumbre Del Sol Group's story

The women who belong to the group live in the Loma neighborhood in the city of Caacupé. Each of the members of the group has a productive activity that she uses to generate her own income.

The members feel confident running their own businesses, since their businesses help them to support their families. They have all received training from financial advisors in order to improve their respective businesses, and each of them has created a good business plan.

Norma, for example, makes a living selling sweets, and this business has allowed her to earn a decent income to help her family. She makes the sweets by purchasing fruit pulp and other ingredients and mixing them together.

Norma has many reliable customers because of the quality of her products, and she always sells all of the sweets that she prepares.

She is grateful to Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva for the credit help they have offered her.
