Alas Paraguayas Group's story

The group called Alas Paraguayas is in its fifth loan cycle in the women's bank program, in which they all help each other get ahead. They're doing the poverty-elimination survey with the goal of being able to offer their loved ones better living conditions so they don't suffer any hardship.

Among them it's worth mentioning Julia, who sells food and beverages. She's very good at what she does, and her work has enabled her to help her family and cover their daily needs so they don't lack for anything.

Julia also said she looks for ways to continue to grow, and this is why she decided to join the group, which will be a big help to her in being able to keep on fighting for her family.

She's requesting this loan to buy products to make her dishes, such as meat, condiments, baked goods, vegetables, and others, as well as beverages to sell.
