La Amistad Group's story

The group “La Amistad” (Friendship) started with the union of various neighborhoods in the city of Santaní; each one of these is always strengthened by its families, in order to give them everything they need for a better life. Jovina and Ortencia work selling chipas (cheese buns). Every day, they work together in the preparation. They say that, thanks to the loan, they were able to increase their customer base because they built a bigger oven. This time, they are requesting a loan for the purchase of ingredients for chipa, which is a typical Paraguayan food. They wish to buy starch, cheese, anise, eggs, and other items. They are grateful for the great help that they receive, because thanks to this, they are expanding and helping their families.

In this group: Sonia, Isidora, Ortencia, Nimia, Claudia, Jovina, Liz, Blacida, Ani, Francisca, Sandra, Lidia
