Las Perlas Del Sur Group's story

Friends and neighbors came together to form the group called Las Perlas del Sur in the city of Encarnación. They have all been working together in this committee for 31 cycles, in addition to being part of the poverty elimination program.

One of the members is Eva, who does domestic work and sells jewelry. She says that she is looking for a way to be able to work and thus help to sustain her home. She has a customer base that always orders from her, and it is thanks to this that she is doing very well.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Eva’s sales have declined somewhat, and she has been unable to generate sufficient income to meet all her obligations.

She took out this loan to purchase a variety of jewelry to sell so she can continue to work as she has been doing.

Note: Only one person appears in this photo, but this loan is for a group. The group photo was not possible due to efforts to avoid crowding people because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
