A loan of $4,100 helped a member to buy stock merchandise for her store.

Torype Oñondivepa Group's story

Twenty women from Ciudad del Este have joined together to work as a team and through this work are able to help each other out. They saw in Fundación Paraguaya’s enterprising women program a great help and decided to join. They are currently in their 16th cycle and they want to reach the highest level within the program.

Maxima tells us that she has a well-stocked grocery store that she can support her family with. Her store is the only source of help for her to get ahead. She comments that she started out with very little but thanks to sacrifice and effort was able to gradually grow. She wants to be able to continue growing as a micro businesswoman and thus be able to help her family even more.

She’s asking for the loan to stock her store with rice, noodles, sugar, milk, baked goods and other items which are very popular and sell the most.
