Virgen Del Perpetuo Socorro Group's story

The Virgen del Perpetuo Socorro Communal Bank was formed on the 18th of November, 2009. It is comprised of 15 women who are working with the Women Entrepreneurs Committee, and they are in their first cycle. This group was formed thanks to the current Director of Finances, Marcia G.. She was able to get all of her neighbors and friends together. The loan is for their different activities like selling notions, selling food, selling cosmetics, buying merchandise for the grocery store (rice, sugar, noodles, dairy products, pastries, and dried leaves for tea, etc.), selling meat, selling drinks, selling remedies, selling fruit, raising chickens, raising goats, hair styling, making clothing, and buying massage supplies, etc. All of them are very happy working this way in such a united and supportive manner with the Paraguaya Foundation.

In this group: Ernesta , Marcia , Eulogia, Liz Margarita , Ma. José , Ma. Justina , Carmen, Natalia, Virginia , Ma. Clara , Mirian , Perla, Norma , Ma. Margarita, Ma. Del Rosario
