8 De Diciembre Group's story

The '8 de Diciembre' committee are currently on their third loan cycle within Fundación Paraguaya's Entrepreneurial Women's program. The group is made up of 16 ladies who carry out different business activities but also carry out group activities in order to strengthen their team spirit.

One of the members of this committee is Dora whose business is selling 'chipas' (cheese buns - a traditional Paraguayan food). This provides her with the resources she needs to help her family. She describes herself as a very hard-working and entrepreneurial woman who works as hard as she can every day so that she can continue growing as a small businesswoman.

Dora is requesting a loan to buy starch, cheese, butter, eggs and other supplies she needs for making 'chipas'. This will help her to continue making progress.
