Lucerito Group's story

This current committee was started by Sra. Olga V., who lives at Km 8 Monday in Ciudad del Este. She contacted her neighbors and friends to form this committee in her area.

The committee is named “Lucerito” and started its fifth loan cycle with 17 members. This group stands out in the neighborhood for being close-knit, supportive, and responsible. The members possess a great entrepreneurial spirit and already work to collect money for the committee fund.

One of these enterprising women is Ramona A., who sells seasonal fruit grown by her neighbors and members of the committee. She displays her products at a stand in front of her house. Ramona works and constantly helps with the household expenses (daily meals). The loan she is requesting will be used to buy fruits such as oranges, tangerines, bananas, and pineapples.

In this group: Ramona, Rosana, Stella, Asunción, María, Olga, Mirta, Librada, Luz, Lidia, Alicia, Juana, Ursulina, Bella, Margarita*, Mirian*, Gumercinda*
