Virgen Del Carmen Group's story

The communal bank is called ”Virgen del Carmen,“ and they are in their seventh loan cycle with ten members. It is a group that stands out in the neighborhood for being very close-knit, supportive and responsible. It is noted especially that they wish to work hard and succeed.

Victoriana, the chairperson, sells all types of food, such as empanadas, sandwiches and other kinds. She says that she works from a very early hour, which is when she gets up to make her food.

She has a very good clientele, because her meals are very delicious and her customers love them.

She is requesting the help of Kiva and Fundación Paraguaya, in order to buy supplies to be able to continue making her food, such as condiments, greens, vegetables, meats and other ingredients. She and her group are grateful for the help they receive, as it will be very important for them.

In this group: Victoriana, Agueda, Maria, Marta, Claudia, Perla, Veronica, Salustina, Ramona, Vanessa
