Unidas Group's story

The “Unidas” (United) women’s committee started working with Fundación Paraguaya in 2010 thanks to a promotion conducted by Idalina who invited and organized her friends and neighbors in the neighborhood. The group currently has 12 women members who work in a united, coordinated way. The women are very united, responsible and mutually supportive.

Sara sells chipas (traditional Paraguayan food) and comments that she’s been doing this for some time now so she has a well-established clientele. Her product is very sought after by her customers and this is why she does so well in this. Day to day she strives more and more to grow and to help her family.

She is asking for the loan to buy chipas to stock up and meet customer demand. They are very grateful for the help they are getting from Kiva and from Fundación Paraguaya.

In this group: Idalina, Aurelia, Catalina, Sara, Aparicia, Perla, Rumilda, Ludilia, Gladys, Felicia, Pablina, Mariana*
