8 De Diciembre Group's story

The December 8th Group is from the city of Curuguaty. The women have put a lot of hope in the program for women in business. For this reason they got together to work and help one another. They are very entrepreneurial and hard-working people who desire to help their families.

Maria is one of these hard-working women. She shares that she works raising and selling animals such as pigs, chickens, and ducks. She says her work requires a lot of sacrifice and is tiring, but she really enjoys what she does, and it is a dignified and honest job. Additionally, it is her family's main source of income.

She is asking for a loan to buy chicks and small ducks, and food for these birds. This loan will help her a lot. She is thankful to the foundation and Kiva for providing the opportunity to get ahead..
