A loan of $3,275 helped a member to buy vegetables for resale.

Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

This is committee is from Ciudad del Este. It is made up of 16 women who are now working on their fourth loan cycle. They are all friends and neighbors from this city. They got together with the goal of earning more income for their families and thereby being able to give them a better future.

One of the members is Lilian. She sells vegetables for a living. She says she has many customers who always buy from her. In other words, she already has a solid clientele. She says that her work allows her to help her family and to keep up her house.

She is asking for a loan to buy vegetables, which will allow her to increase the variety of what she sells and satisfy her customers. She thanks Kiva and Fundación Paraguaya for the opportunities they have given her.

In this group: Maria Celia, Juana, Rosa, Norma, María, Lucina, Ninfa, Naida, Liz, María Luisa, María Asuncion, Sandra, Lilian, Blanca*, Francisca*, Maria*
