Enterprising Women Group's story

The group named "Enterprising Women" was formed by a group of neighbors in the city of Mariano Roque Alonso.

GracieL. Aguero is one of the members of the group. She is a caterer by occupation, selling foods such as snacks, sandwiches, lunch meats, subs, and cookies in the community. She has a very close knit family and it is maD. up of her four children and her husband. He is employed as a vendor. She finds herself very satisfied with her business and with the support that she receives from her group. But GracieL. requests a loan to purchase more ingredients (milk products, breads, eggs, meats, etc) to be able to produce more food to sell.

The group knows that without the support of Kiva and Fundacion Paraguaya (Kiva Field Partner) it would be very difficult to progress although not impossible. Obstacles get in the way of progress when there are no entities that will proviD. financial support.

In this group: Ana, Valentina, Rosilda, Griselda, Aurora, Elsa, Felicita, Alicia, Graciela, Maria, Mirta, Nieve, Maria, Justa, Damiana, Eustaquia, Avelina, Lilian*, Antonela*, Elva*
