Niño Jesus Group's story

The group named Niño Jesus is in its third cycle in the women's committee program, where they join commit themselves to work and help each other so everyone can achieve. They are surveying how to eliminate poverty, which allows them to measure each other's incomes. Thanks to this they know that three of the 16 women have a very low income.

One of the members is Irma, whose income level was around level one, which is a low income. She dedicates herself to selling Paraguayan cheese buns, which is a typical Paraguayan food, and it is thanks to this work that she can help her family. She is a very hardworking person who pushes herself to achieve and better both her life and that of her family.

She is asking for this loan to buy ingredients to be able to continue making cheese buns for sale, which include starch flour, cheese, anise, manteca cheese, and other ingredients to be able to keep working.

In this group: Nilfa, Marcelina, Ana, Alicia, Norma, Elva, Nilda, Alicia, Mariela*, Marta, Maria, Nidia, Nancy, Carina, Nidia*, Irma
