San Rafael Group's story

The women's committee group named San Rafael is in its 3rd cycle of the program. It is located in the city of Caacupe. They are 17 women who strive to improve their living conditions through group work.

Mrs. Gladys helps support her family with her salon. She says she began her business in a small shop and little by little has improved her living conditions. She dreams of growing her business, which is the support of her family, in order to provide them a better quality of life.

She requests this loan to invest in purchasing supplies for her salon like dyes, creams, shampoo, mouthwash, and other products to be able to improve the service she provides to her customers.

In this group: Gladys, Jessica, Julia, Mirta, Nilsa, Evelia, Marta, Reimunda, Cecilia, Gabriela, Teresa, Faustina, Ana, Sara, Maria, Evelyn, Domiciana
