Las Habilidosas Group's story

The present group is LAS HABILIDOSAS (“The Skillful Ones”). Currently, its members find themselves in their second cycle and the line of credit they manage ranges from 100.000 Gs. to 500.000 Gs. For the most part, the clients dedicate themselves to buying and selling merchandise. Other members, who have put forth much effort and responsibility, can see the fruit of their labors after many years of sacrifice. They now have general stores, snack bars, and sell products such as Kalúa and Avon. Thanks to the credit granted by the Fundacion Paraguaya and Kiva, they have the desire to advance every day.
