Las Tejedoras De Ñanduti Group's story

The women who form this group are from the Tavai de Pirayú area.

They are very hard-working women who dedicate themselves fully to their small businesses. All of these women previously did not have enough capital to improve their businesses, but today thanks to the working businesswomen's group program and the little capital provided by Kiva partner Fundación Paraguaya they have an opportunity to earn more income for their families.

The woman are very grateful to the foundation for the support of such importance it provides.

The members are now finishing their sixth loan cycle over the past year and seven months. One of the members is Norma, who makes a living selling varied food and beverage products such as maté, oil, canned goods, bread products and other items. This business has really helped her with family expenses, so she wishes to invest in herself and take advantage of the income by improving her business and expanding and buying more products to sell. She tells us she is very satisfied with the group and the help she receives from her fellow members has been been very important for her, since she has progressed so much not just economically but also in valuing the relationships with her fellow women, and she wishes to stay in the group.

Norma is requesting the loan to purchase beverages, meat, oil, baked goods, canned goods and other items.
