A loan of $4,475 helped a member to buy chipas (a typical Paraguayan food) to later sell.

Las Amigas Group's story

Las Amigas is a lending group composed of 18 women in the city of Caacupé. They are very hardworking and entrepreneurial people, and all of them are friends and neighbors that decided to unite to work together and in this way be able to help each other. Currently they are in the 17th cycle of the program of Fundación Paraguaya, and they have demonstrated good work.

Emiliana is one of the members, and she tells us that she dedicates herself to the sale of chipas (a typical Paraguayan food). She sells all over her neighborhood and thanks to the high quality of her products she has become well known and has been able to become a good micro entrepreneur.

She is asking for this loan to buy chipas, with which she will be able to sustain herself and in this way continue working. Her dream is to one day have a locale where she can sell her products.
