The Comité de Mujeres Solar is made up of 20 members, all of them women from the Barrio Solar in the city of Villa Elisa. They are currently in their sixth loan cycle in the Fundación Paraguaya's program for women entrepreneurs. The group has great communication and is very unified and supportive. One of the members is Elva. She sells silver jewelry of all sorts. She says that this work and her talent for sales have helped her improve her family's lives and cover their everyday expenses. She is requesting a loan from the Foundation and Kiva to buy silver jewelry to meet her customers' demands.
