La Amistad Group's story

Twenty-three women from the city of Mariano Roque Alonso have come together in order to be able to help themselves through working together. They are a close-knit group of very capable women who want to be able to give their families everything that they were not able to have.

Edith is is part of this group. She explains that she has a small beauty salon where she takes care of her clients. She says that she has a great clientele; she does very good work, and that helps her to have a good number of clients. Her dream is to be able to have a larger shop where she can employ other people, because she wants to be able to give opportunities to people who need them.

Edith is requesting this loan to purchase hair color, shampoo, rinses, curlers, and other supplies that she needs to be able to provide a good service to her clients. She and her friends in the group are grateful to receive this opportunity from Kiva and Fundación Paraguaya.
