Fortaleza Group's story

This group is called "Fortaleza" [Strength] and it was formed with the union of friends and neighbours from the city of Asuncion. They seek a way to work together and with this to help each other to offer better living conditions to their families.

One of them is Maria. She sells all kinds of essential items in her store, and mentions that her business has allowed her to get ahead. Her goal is to keep improving as she is the breadwinner of her home and family.

She mentions that due to the covid19 pandemic, her business was affected and she could not work normally. This in turn had an impact on her income.

Maria is looking for a way to reinvent herself and start her business again, and thus be able to continue helping her family.

She asks for this loan to buy a variety of products to stock up her store such as drinks, baked goods, vegetables, canned goods, meat and other products to continue with her sales.
