A loan of $2,725 helped a member to restock merchandise in her store.


Paraguay Renda Group's story

This group formed because of Romelia B.. She found out about the program through her sister, a member of another group. Her sister told her about the positive things she has gotten by the formation of the group of enterprising women. Keeping this in mind, she invited her friends and colleagues from the neighborhood. They decided to join the group work in order to get ahead and improve their lifestyle.

They are 24 hard-working and humble women who work very hard to win their sustenance every day. That way they get their families ahead.

Keeping in mind the great demand there is at the start of the season and the classes, Romelia will use the requested loan to buy merchandise. She will buy things like school and office supplies (notebooks, backpacks, pencil boxes, pencils, file folders, paper). She will buy accessories for school uniforms and other things to increase the stock in her store.

In this group: Romelia, Dionicia , Ma Estela, Romina, Sunilda , Norma, Ruth, Diosma, Niña, Magdalena, Fátima, Graciela , Inocencia, Daili, Teodora, Sebastiana, Susana, Perla, Teresa, Juana, Verónica, Andresa, Estela*
