La Paloma Group's story

In order to bring this group together, Liz B., a resident of the María Auxiliadora neighborhood of Ciudad del Este, contacted her neighbors and friends to start a committee in the area.
The committee is called "La Paloma" and is made up of 17 very active, unified women who all live in the same area.
They all work independently to earn their own income, but they also do other work to raise funds for the committee, to be used in case of an emergency.
Liz is very satisfied with the work they're doing to raise their families' quality of life, all of them supporting each other with the fruits of their efforts.
Liz sells clothing, not just garments bought from other vendors but also those made by members of the group. In this way, the members support each other mutually.
Liz wants to increase her stock of merchandise, and so she's requested this loan to buy t-shirts, blouses, pants, dresses, and other clothing.

In this group: Liz Carolina, Mirian, Marciana , Lucina, Liz, Anastasia , Juana , Amada, Francisca, María, Catalina, Gloria, Estelvina, María, Geronima, Rosa*
