Joayhu Group's story

This committee was formed thanks to Claudia who lives in the city of Concepción. The group's president was motivated by the idea of creating something good for her fellow group members, giving them the sense that, through the committee, each one of them would be making progress. The women were all very happy to create their group which they named Joayhu. This committee is made up of 14 women who all work in an active, selfless and very entrepreneurial manner. The ladies own a snack bar where they sell empanadas, marineras and barbecued meat. They also sell 'chipas' (cheese buns), cakes and sweet treats. Each one of them takes care of preparing the food that they sell to their customers. They have a very well-established customer base. The women are requesting a loan to buy ingredients for the food that they produce such as meat, spices, eggs, flour, cassava, etc. They all hope to continue working hard to get ahead in life. They are looking to make progress themselves and also help their community to make progress.
