Emprendedoras De Costa Group's story

The committee called Emprendedoras de Costa was formed with the goal of each one to be able to improve their quality of life and that their loved ones lack for nothing.

Venancia is a self-sacrificing and enterprising person who, despite her physical difficulties does not give up. She uses a wheelchair but does not give up and struggles to be of help to her family. She works making and selling Paraguayan soups, cakes, and also makes hats and, although her work is modest, with this she helps her family.

She asks for this loan to be able to purchase raw materials to make her soups and cakes, such as flour, eggs, butter, sugar, and other products. She is grateful for the opportunity to be able to invest in her work, which will be of great help to her.
