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

A loan helped to buy nail files, nail clippers, acetone, and other supplies.

Alas Paraguayas Group's story

This group takes part in the poverty eradication programme. All the members do their utmost to improve their lives. Their goal is to improve both personally and professionally so that their loved ones want for nothing.
Ana Beatriz is the group president and main borrower this time around. She is hard-working and spares no effort to build a better life and a better future for her family.
She is a manicurist and reports that she has a loyal customer base thanks to her good work. Her plans for the future are to keep improving and thus keep increasing her family's standard of living. She asks for the loan to buy nail files, nail clippers, acetone, and other supplies in order to keep her business going.
Note: there is only one person in the picture, but this is indeed a group loan. It was not possible to take a group picture because of pandemic-related restrictions.
