Kuña Rory Group's story

The committee called 'Kuña Rory' is from the city of Carapeguá. The group members are hard workers, entrepreneurs and above all idealists who have many dreams to fulfill. The group is currently in it's first cycle and has 11 members. They always put in their best effort to be able to move ahead and help their families.

One of the group members, Hilaria, makes a living selling chipas (a small, baked cheese bun), which is a traditional food of Paraguay. She told us that she has a good business and that chipas are frequently eaten, hot or cold. With the profits from her business she has been able to sustain the daily costs that arise in her home. Her dream is to be able to one day have a large business where she makes chipas, so that she can become a distributor and be able to give work to other people.

Hilaria requests a loan to buy starch, lard, eggs, salt and other ingredients to be able to make the chipas that she sells.

Everyone in the group is very thankful to Kiva and to Fundación for the opportunity they have received.

In this group: Blanca Tomasa, Tomasa , De Jesus , Hilaria , Blasida , Elva , Tomasa , Eugenia , Elida , Severiana , Simona
