A loan of $4,075 helped a member to buy fabrics, thread, elastic, scissors, sewing accessories, and other items.

Las Amigas Group's story

The contact to initiate the present group was one of the members, who invited and organized her friends to become part of the Committee of Entrepreneurial Women program. This is why she calls all her friends by name, since they are all friends and neighbors in this city.

Señora Wilfrida is one of the members, who tells us that her work is sewing and decoration. She has been married to Señor Jorge for 5 years, and she has a son who is 3 years old. Wilfrida dreams of setting up a store to sell clothing and decorations and to succeed this way in offering a better life style to her family and also to continue helping her husband with the household expenses.

She is applying for the loan to purchase the resources that she uses for work, such as fabrics, threads, elastic, scissors, sewing accessories, and other items. She, like her friends, is grateful to Fundación Paraguaya and to Kiva.
