Las Vitoriosas Group's story

The group known as Las Victoriosas is in their first cycle. They are participating in the survey to eliminate poverty, as 4 members of the group live below the poverty line. [The survey is part of Fundacion Paraguay's innovative "Poverty Stoplight" program aimed at helping individuals lift themselves out of poverty]

One of the members is Ondina, who in the last survey was revealed to be in the second poverty level. She makes a living running a dessert shop, where she makes all types of cakes and sweets. She is a very hardworking person who has gotten ahead through her efforts and the help of her family. Her goal is to continue working and contributing to her family through this work.

She requests a loan to buy flour, eggs, sweets, and other products, to be able to continue working and preparing the products that she sells. She is thankful for the opportunity that she has because it will be a great help to her.

In this group: Otilia, Cinthia, Hilda, Mirtha, Elizabeth, Gladys, Martina, Stela, Mercedes, Marta, Cinthia, Ondina*
