Mburucuya Group's story

Eighteen women from the city of San Lorenzo have come together with the hope of obtaining better earnings, so that they can help their families. They are hard-working, determined and very entrepreneurial women. They carry out independent activities, but they also have joint projects which help them strengthen their sense of teamwork.

One of these hard-working women is Maria, the group's president. She has a small but well-equipped beauty salon. She comments that thanks to this business, she has been able to help her family get ahead, since she works very hard each day and thus earns a good income. She says that she has a loyal customer base of people who always come back to her salon.

She wants to stock her business, and for this reason she is asking for help from Kiva and the Paraguaya Foundation to buy hair dyes, nail polish, spray, gel and other supplies, which are the main items she needs for her work.
