Las Poderosas Group's story

Las Poderosas is the name of a nice group of women that was formed in the city of Itá. The group got its start thanks to one of the members of the group, who contacted Fundación Paraguaya to find out how to form a communal bank. After she was given advice about the program, she successfully brought 15 women together to form the group. The members of the group enjoy working with each other and are now on their third loan cycle with Fundación Paraguaya. Mercedes is one of the members of this selfless group. She makes a living selling ice cream, and says that her business is going well, especially when the weather is very hot. The months when she has the most sales are from December to February. She is asking for the loan because she wants to stock up in order to offer her customers more variety. She wants to purchase various flavors of ice cream so she will be ready to meet her customers’ orders.
