Cerrito Group's story

The committee named Cerrito was formed on March 24th, 2008, thanks to the director of the group, Mrs. Antoliana Fernandez, who works as a saleswoman. She talked to a loan officer about forming a group and then gathered 18 women. The group works well together and is now on its fifth cycle with the Fundación. This is an excellent group thanks to the solidarity they have. Each woman invests her loan in her respective business. All of the women participate in other activities to save money as a group and to mutually help each other achieve goals they have as individuals and with the Fundación Paraguaya. The committee participates in weekly meetings and is extremely supportive. 1 Antoliana F. - Handicrafts sales 2 Cantalicia Q. - Avon cosmetics sales 3 Liduvina C. - Food sales 4 Felicita C. - General store 5 María Z.
