A loan of $3,600 helped a member to purchase milk for resale.

San Blas Group's story

The San Blas committee is now in its eighth cycle of the Enterprising Women of the Paraguay Foundation program and is made up of 18 members. All of them dream of a better future for their children than what they have lived through, which is why they make the effort to provide their family with daily meals, education and a good upbringing.

Blanca is one of the group members. She sells milk all throughout her neighbourhood and tells us that she has steady and loyal customers who always buy their milk from her. Blanca starts her working day very early as the milk has to be on her customers' tables by breakfast time. She tells us that her job requires a great sacrifice, but she likes it because it is decent and honest work.

Blanca is applying for a loan to buy enough milk to meet customer demand. She is thankful to the foundation and to Kiva for the opportunity they have given her.
