The communal bank Dinámicas comprises 12 woman who have different professions: dressmaking, selling food, and working as an employee, among others. Petrona, one of the members, sells chipas (a traditional Paraguayan food) to help her family. Petrona says business is good because chipas are eaten throughout the day. She has loyal customers, and business is growing steadily with her hard work.

Her goal is to be a good small-business owner and hire others. She is applying for a loan to buy chipas to sell and invest in and improve her business.
