Virgen Del Perpetuo Group's story

“Virgen del Perpetuo” is in cycle number 12 Fundación Paraguaya’s committee program. They are taking the poverty elimination survey as an instrument of help for the women. Sixteen of them are above the poverty level thanks to their efforts but they are aware that they must continue striving.

One example is Tiburcia who sells ‘chipas’ [cheese buns], a traditional Paraguayan food that’s sold year-round. She says that she does well with her sales; thanks to her skills she has many customers. She helps her family and is gradually improving her income more and more.

Today, she’s requesting this loan to be able to buy chipas to continue with her sales, improve her income and thus grow.
