Primavera Group's story

The “Primavera” (Spring) committee is composed of 11 women from the city of Curuguaty. They are hardworking women who are above all entrepreneurs. Thanks to their teamwork they are already in their third cycle and their goal is to be able to reach the maximum level of the program. Rufina works hard in her grocery store every day; she gets customers starting at very early hours so she starts working very early too. She defines herself as a person with many dreams and goals to reach; she strives towards them daily. She’s asking for the loan to buy soft-drinks, dairy products, baked goods and other basic staple items which are the ones that sell best. Rufina and her group are grateful for the support they get from Kiva and Fundación Paraguaya.
