Koe Pyahu Group's story

Koe Pyahu is the name of an excellent group of women established in the city of Villa Elisa, thanks to one of the members of the group who contacted the consultant in a weekly meeting that they had in the area in order to find out about the work of the Committee of Women Entrepreneurs. Once she was well-informed about the program she was able to connect the 16 women who are now comfortably working already in their third cycle, together and supportive within the program.

Sonia is one of these women. She works every day in her little ice cream shop. She tells us that through this work she can maintain her home and give her family all that they need in order to have a decent life without hardships like those she went through. She is known as a woman entrepreneur who is not afraid of work; all that she does is for her family.

She is asking for a loan in order to buy ice cream, of different flavors, with which she may have more variety to be able to offer to her customers, as we are in the very hot season and it is when she has more sales.
