San Buenaventura Group's story

In the Peguajho area of the town of Paraguari a group of women met in order to familiarize themselves with the program offered by Fundación Paraguaya; as it seemed to be an excellent opportunity for them, they decided to meet again to discuss the structure of the group.
The group was named San Buenaventura for having been established on a date close to Paraguari’s Patron Saint’s celebration day. They commit to keeping together and to working in mutual respect of all the members, and they are currently working their sixth cycle with an excellent result.
Feliciana engages in selling food she herself prepares. She is a very self-sacrificing woman, but she desires to prosper together with her family. She works a lot in order to be able to punctually repay her debts, and she hopes the lenders will be able to help her through Kiva. If the loan is granted to her, she will invest it in the purchase of ingredients to prepare the food that she sells.

In this group: Feliciana, Digna, Sonia, Matilde, Hilda, Magdalena, Lourdes, Gloria, Rocio, Ada, Esmilde, Victoria, Diana, Fatima, Alejandra*, Gessica*, Isabel*
