A loan of $1,175 helped for the purchase materials used to make chipas, such as cheese, corn, oil, and egg, etc.


Jorge's story

Mr. V., a young man of 25 years of age. He is married and he has two children. Each day he makes chipas (a traditional yucca-based snack) at his home and then drives throughout the city selling them from his vehicle. He also receives orders in advance for special events at local schools, and occasionally he fills orders from Ciudad del Este.

Mr. V. says that his business involves lots of sacrifice as he must work many hours each day in order to produce and sell his product. Nevertheless, he says that his primary goal is to use his business to support his family and to be able to pay for basic necessities.

With a loan from Fundación Paraguaya, Mr. V. will be able to buy large quantities of ingredients, like starch, corn, and cheese. These large purchases will allow him to cope with the rise in prices that usually occurs during the weeks around Holy Week.
