Niño Jesus Group's story

“Niño Jesus es de Ciudad del este” is in its first cycle in the committee for women program, where all the members are putting forth a major effort to get ahead. They are also part of the elimination of poverty program, where they work to improve their incomes.

Estela is one of the members and she sells food that she cooks herself, and sells it on foot. She is a very hardworking person who is getting ahead and growing slowly.

Her dream is to be able to continue growing, so she is working hard. She is asking for this loan to buy supplies so she can continue cooking. [The members] are all grateful for the opportunity they are getting to continue growing.

In this group: Maria, Nimia, Lidia, Marina, Miguelina, Mary, Estela, Aurelia*, Pastora, Jorgelina, Maria, Mirna, Graciela, Tania*, Sully
