11 De Septiembre Group's story

The 11 de Septiembre group is located in the city of Asunción. It is made up of 20 women, all friends and neighbours from Asuncion. They are currently in the second cycle of the Female Entrepreneurs' Program in Fundación Paraguaya. They joined together with the goal of giving their families a life without hardship or limitations. Gregoria is one of the members. She says that she works very hard, since she knows that working is the only way to succeed and help her family. She is modest and tells us that she has been working for some time now, so she has a very good customer base. Her dream is to become a largescale designer, and she hopes to achieve this through her work. She is requesting this loan for the purchase of fabric, thread, buttons, clasps, and other items for her workshop. She thanks the Fundacion and Kiva for the opportunity that they are providing her to access help.
