San Blas Group's story

María Cristina who lives in the Tacuapi Compañía 40 kilometers from the Curuguaty office spearheaded the formation of this committee. The committee chose the name “San Blas” and they are in the second cycle with 10 members. All the women are very self-denying and mutually supportive in order to get ahead together.

Ramona has a snack bar or kiosk where she sells beverages and all kinds of dishes prepared by herself. She prepares all sorts of fast food daily like turnovers, hamburgers, croquettes, and others to sell to people who often can’t return home to have lunch or breakfast so she takes care of very hygienically preparing their meals and sell them. Thanks to the quality of her products she has many customers and she wants to stay at this level so she asks for a loan in order to acquire beverages and ingredients to prepare her food.
