A loan of $4,400 helped a member to buy milk for later sale.

Costa Pucu Group's story

The women of this committee are from the city of Caacupé. They are on their 9th loan cycle of the "mujeres emprendedoras" program and they have 18 members. All of them are hardworking women who are committed to their families. For them they are striving to the maximum, because they want to give their best to their family.

One of the women is Mrs. Rafaela, who is a fighter and sacrificed woman. She says that everyday she starts works very early distributing the milk she sells, since she wants her customers to have her product for the breakfast hour.

One of her goals is to become a great storekeeper, to generate greater earnings and continue helping her family.

She is requesting a loan to buy a lot of milk, so that she is well stocked and can meet the needs of her customers. She is grateful to the foundation and Kiva for the opportunity provided to her.
