A loan of $2,200 helped a member to buy cheese buns to sell.

Itacua Poty Group's story

There are 12 women members of the Itacuá Poty communal bank in the city of Caacupé. These women are hardworking fighters, the proof of which is that they are in their 16th loan cycle with the women entrepreneurs program of the Paraguayan foundation.

Luz is one of the group's members. She sells "chipas," (cheese buns) which are a Paraguayan traditional food. She tells us it is going well because these buns are eaten throughout the day and year round. Her goal is to be able to keep working and supporting her family.

She is requesting this loan to buy cheese buns to have in stock and, in this way, meet the demand of her customers. She says she is very grateful to the foundation for the help she is receiving.
