A loan of $1,625 helped a member to buy flour, leavening, seasoning and other items.

Damas Unidas Group's story

This group was formed thanks to one of the members who suggested to her friends and neighbors that they form a communal bank, to which they happily agreed. All want, through their individual work to be able to help their families and children by giving them a decent and dignified life.

Sra. Pascuela is one example of the struggle. She owns a bakery, which supports her household and family. She notes that, thanks to her efforts and close attention, she already has an established clientele which generates a very good income. Consequently, she wants to continue investing in her business and is requesting help from Kiva and Fundación Paraguaya in order to purchase flour, leavening, seasoning and other items which are essential ingredients for her business.

She, together with her friends, is very grateful for the opportunities afforded them.

In this group: Pascuala, Blanca, Lurdes, María, Adela, Raimunda, Virginia, Wilma, Juliana, Alicia*
