Espiritu Santo Group's story

Pablina M. started this group almost one year ago. The group is now in its fourth cycle of loans with the Fundación Paraguaya.


They are neighbors and friends from the Mburukuja neighborhood of Ciudad del Este. They do activities every weekend together to earn money on the side for when one member may not be able to pay their loan or is encountering difficulties with her business.

Their official group savings is 5,000,000 Gs. During their weekly meetings, the women have a raffle of basic needs products within the group. They are very supportive and responsible, and always pay their loan on time, if not in advance.
