A loan of $1,650 helped a member to buy vegetables.

San Blás Group's story

The “San Blas” group has ten women members from one of the most distant communities from the city of Curuguaty. Because it’s so difficult for them to come to the city, Fundación Paraguaya has gone to them to offer them the opportunity to get ahead and to help them get ahead.

One of the members is María who tells us that she is a vegetable merchant. She sells onions, tomatoes, peppers, pumpkins and other types of vegetables. She relates that she herself is the seller and with much effort is able to help her family cover daily expenses that arise.

She is asking Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva for help to be able to buy tomatoes, peppers, onions, leafy green vegetables and other types of vegetables to stock up and have products available to offer her customers.

In this group: Regina, Maria , Teresa , Florencia , Sabina , Daisi , Francisca , Marciana , Francisca , Sonia
