A loan helped a member to buy flour, eggs, butter, sweets, and other products to sell.


Mujeres Guerreras Group's story

This group was formed by friends and neighbors in the city of Encarnación. They have set a goal to grow, not only financially, but also as people, so they can provide better living conditions for their loved ones.

One member worth mentioning is Hilda, who has a business making and selling sweets, homemade bread, and other artisanal products. She is a married mother, and with her work she helps support her household and loved ones so they do not endure hardships. Hilda says that despite daily difficulties, she does not give up, but instead gives her all so her loved ones do not lack anything.

She is requesting this loan to buy ingredients to make her products and other products to sell, such as flour, eggs, butter, and sweets.
