Mujeres De Yguazu Group’s story
The group called Mujeres del Yguazu is its seventh cycle of the women’s committee program. They are female friends and neighbors, who have united to be able to grow and get ahead. They are in the poverty elimination program, striving to overcome their situation of poverty.
One of the members is Ilsa, who in her survey, showed she was in level-one poverty. What that means is that she is in extreme poverty. But through effort and continuous work, and through the sale of chipas, a typical Paraguayan food, she is earning a living in a dignified and honest way. She is requesting this loan to invest in the purchase of supplies to be able to make her chipas, such as starch, cheese, eggs, butter, etc. She is grateful for the opportunity to be able to grow and get ahead.
In this group: Francisca, Ramona, Catalina, Virginia, Maura, Margarita, Teresa, Mirian, Juana, Domiciana, Elena, Nely, Mirta, Magdalena, Maricela, Blanca, Ilsa, Lucia, Nancy, Cynthia, Rosalina*, Gladi*, Celia*
