1 De Mayo Group's story

The group named “1 de Mayo” is from the city of Paraguarí. Its members are unified and supportive of one another. They state that they are pleased and feel that they have the support of the Women’s Committee Program to help them increase their incomes and become more independent.

One of the members is Rocio, who sells food that she prepares herself. She has an established clientele and indicates that her work allows her to help sustain her household and her family. Rocio is a determined person who, despite the difficulties she faces each day, looks for ways to provide her loved ones with everything she didn’t have.

She is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of supplies for preparing her food such as meats, condiments, baked goods, vegetables, and other ingredients. As a result, she will be able to satisfy her customers.
