Tekopora Group's story

The group called "Tekopora" is in its first loan cycle in the women's committee program. It was formed in the city of Caacupé, where everyone works for a better quality of life so that they don't lack for anything.

Señora Aurora is one of them. She helps the sustenance of her family, working hard in her grocery store, which she managed to open with much effort. She is an enterprising person who seeks a way to be able to improve and generate greater income to cover the needs of her family.

She is requesting this loan in order to be able to invest it in the purchase of various products to stock her grocery store, such as beverages, baked goods, vegetables, fruits, meats, and other additional products in order to continue with her work as she has been doing.

She is grateful for the opportunity to be able to continue with her sales as she has been doing.
