A loan of $3,650 helped a member to buy jeans for sale.


Las Gaviotas Group's story

The “Las Gaviotas” ["The Gulls"] communal bank is in its fourth cycle with the Fundación Paraguaya's Female Entrepreneurs program. There are 18 members, all from the city of Asunción. They each have profitable businesses and are very proud of them.
Maria sells jeans. She tells us that she always has good sales because she always has a great variety of jeans and therefore many customers, some of whom make orders. Thanks to her hard work and her gift for making sales, she has been able to continue expanding her business and obtaining the means to help her family with their daily costs of living.
She is requesting a loan for the purchase of jeans. With this purchase, she will be able to continue selling and attracting more customers. She and her group are happy to have this help from the Fundación and from Kiva.
