Costa Pucú Group's story

The women of this group are from the Costa Pucú company, located in the city of Caacupé. They are hardworking, very organized, united, and maintain a good group identity. This helps them at loan renewal time. By not falling behind, they are able to increase their amounts and complete the cycle.

The women are very grateful to Fundación Paraguaya because, thanks to the benefits and training that they receive, the have found a way to sustain their households. These members have completed their fourth cycle and have been in the program for approximately one year and four months.

Pablina is among the members and is a very active, hard working woman who struggles daily to get her family ahead as best she can. She is a seamstress who makes clothing, sheets, bedspreads, clothing for children, and other things. She also raises animals for food, which is also hard work.

She feels comfortable working and helping her family and would very much like to continue. She is asking for this loan in order to buy supplies that she needs for her work as a seamstress.
