A loan of $3,275 helped a member to buy chips to sell.

San Cayetano Group's story

The San Cayetano Group is in its twelfth loan cycle and currently has thirteen members. It is a responsible group, caring, and they help each other. They are grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for the training they receive, as it is a great opportunity for all of them.

One of the stories that stands out is that of Francisca. She is 57 years old and she has been selling chipas, a typical Paraguayan food, (corn bread made with cheese) for a number of years, working so she can provide financially for her family. She says that the income she earns helps maintain the household and cover the expenses that come along. She is a hardworking and enterprising woman.

She is asking for this loan in order to invest it in the purchase of chipas, in order to be able to sell them and thus to continue earning income for her family.
