Maria Auxiliadora Group's story

The “Maria Auxiliadora” consists of 25 very active and united women who are all friends and neighbors who saw a great opportunity to make headway thanks to the loan program with Kiva partner Fundación Paraguaya. One of the members is Luz, who defines herself as a woman with a strong desire to move up in life and keep growing to be able to help her family. Luz sells food and says that she has a good customer base that always buys her products. It's thanks to her work and sacrifice that she can help her family from day to day. She is requesting the loan to purchase the ingredients she needs to keep making the food she sells. She wants to purchase condiments, meat, empanadas, flour, etc. She is grateful for the help she is receiving because it will be very useful.
