Trabajadoras De Santiago Group's story

The "Trabajadoras de Santiago" committee originated through different promoting activities done in the members' neighborhood. The group was born this way.

Mrs. Maria is the group's president. She sells chipa [cheesy buns] in her neighborhood everyday. She mentions that her job is very difficult, because she does not have a fixed stall, but has to move around looking for customers.

Her dream is to continue progressing with Fundación Paraguaya and that the group keeps gaining strength every day. She mentions that she is happy with the committee and expects many benefits.

She is requesting the loan to buy chipas, in order to sell them and in this way keep working and covering her daily needs.
