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

A loan helped to restock her general store with a variety of grocery products.

Maria Auxiliadora Group's story

Maria Rosa has invested continually in her general store, even through economic crisis in Paraguay due to the pandemic. Her 14-year-old granddaughter is living with her now and depends on Maria to provide for her. As a single caregiver, Maria's business allows her to provide for her granddaughter and give her hope for a better future. With her current loan, she will restock her general store and expand the variety of products she offers. Due to strict social gathering restrictions in Paraguay caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Maria's group cannot meet regularly, so she is the only one who appears in their group profile photo.
