A loan of $3,625 helped a member to buy plastic and cardboard.

Madres Trabajadoras Group's story

The communal bank "Madres Trabajadores" was established 1 year ago and works with Fundación Paraguaya, the majority of its members are already succeeding in working productively. They are women with lots of enthusiasm and desire to succeed.

Hilaria is a very self-sacrificing and hard working person, her job is to recycle all kinds of items like cardboard and plastic. She says that she starts work in the early hours of the morning collecting plastics and cardboard. This is a very worthy job for her, as it allows her to provide for her family as well as being honest work.

She is requesting this loan to buy plastics and cardboard to resell them at a profit. Hilaria and her partners are grateful to the foundation and to Kiva for the help that they receive.
