A loan of $4,500 helped a member to purchase bleach, air-fresheners, disinfectants and other supplies to make cleaning products.

Mujeres Emprendedoras Del Barrio San Pedro Group's story

This group from the city of Encarnación came about as a result of promotions by the lender which were undertaken in the area. It is a long-standing group, which has worked with the Foundation since 2006. They are currently in their 19th lending cycle.

One of the members of this group is Señora María. She works making and selling cleaning products, and also does house-cleaning in several homes. She comments that thanks to her hard and self-sacrificing work, she has been able to move ahead in life and in this way support her family.

She is requesting a loan for the purchase of bleach, air-fresheners, disinfectants and other supplies to be able to continue making her cleaning products which she sells. She is grateful for this opportunity which Kiva and Fundación Paraguaya are giving her.

In this group: Carmen, Norma, Natalia, Catalina, Aurora, Teresa, Raquel, María, Ana, Agustina, Lidia, María, Mirian, Gabriela
