Esmeralda Group's story

The committee named “Esmeralda” is from the city of Encarnación. All of the members are striving to succeed and move forward.

Alba is one of the members and suffers from dwarfism. However, this has not prevented her from working and striving on behalf of her family. Alba sells clothes as a street vendor. In addition, she works as a nanny. Alba is a person who works hard to get ahead and proves to herself that she is someone who wants to get ahead through her efforts.

She is requesting a loan to buy a variety of clothes such as blouses, trousers, T-shirts, and other garments.

Note: The photo shows only one person, even though this is a group loan. It was not possible to take a group photo in order to avoid congregating during the COVID-19 pandemic.
