Santa Librada Group's story

The women's committee "Santa Librada" started working with the Fundación Paraguaya through the promotion of one of its members who had been part of another committee in the area that didn't get renewed. She decided to look for partners and after a lot of communication and a visit from the adviser she was able to form a group of 12 women from her zone. The women are very united and responsible and are very willing to work hard to get ahead, both within the group and with regards to their families. They mentioned that they are very happy working in a team, with a lot of effort and care, under the program Comite de Mujeres.

Victoriana is one of the members of the group. She sells cheese and milk and says she has a very good clientele because she always has good products. Thanks to her work she has made progress and been able to help her family. Her goal is to be able to keep growing her business and therefore keep helping her family.

She asked for a loan to buy milk and cheese to have in stock. She thanks everyone for the opportunity that Kiva and the Fundacion Paraguaya have given her.

In this group: Ceveriana De Jesús, Ana, Silvia, Silvia, Claudia, Eloisa, Maria, Rosa, Laura, Victoriana, Sofia, Bernarda
