Fe Y Alegria Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase materials to make furniture.

Fe Y Alegria Group's story

Maria continues to grow her furniture and fabric business. She and her husband began the business by fixing furniture for people in their community. Eventually they started creating their own furniture. Now, they also do reupholstering, and sell sheets and pillows.

With her current loan, Maria will purchase materials like wood and hardware for making furniture. Her goal this year is to sell enough to be able to reopen a small shop instead of selling her products from her home.

Others in Maria's group have general stores, beauty salons, and sell traditional Paraguayan foods.

Due to the strict social gathering restrictions in Paraguay, Maria's trust group cannot meet regularly and she is the only one who appears in their group profile photo.
