A loan of $3,400 helped a member purchase school uniforms.

Rosa Mistica Group's story

This committee was started by Sra. Rosa Ruiz D., who lives in the neighborhood of Ciudad Nueva Km 7. She contacted her neighbors and friends to form this committee from the area. The committee is named “Rosa Mística”, and consists of 24 active and supportive women who are all from the same area. They have different business activities, with some undertaking new ventures in order to earn a steady income.

Sra. Rosa sells clothing. She has a vending post at the market of Ciudad del Este. There she displays the merchandise she has for sale. She says she performs her work with great hope because she wants her children to study and have a better life in the future as professionals. Rosa also wants to expand her business by adding a shoe store next to her clothing stand. She currently sells all types of clothing and, with this loan she is requesting, will buy school uniforms such as pants, shirts, T-shirts, socks, and skirts.
