Saldivar Poty Group's story

The Saldivar Poty Communal Bank was formed on March 22nd in 2007, thanks to the aspirations of each one of then. Once they contacted the counselor about the program, 18 women joined. They are working happily together in their 11th cycle in a supportive way within the program.

Through the cycles the group has had some inconveniences. The General Director had health problems. But, she is responding without problems to the commitment she accepted. The group, thanks to its supportive work, was able to get ahead and still keep working in the program.

All of them have different activities to make money. They help each other to reach the common objectives that they all have in the group and with the Fundación Paraguaya. They actively participate in the weekly meetings, and their work is impeccably supportive.

One of the members is a woman who sells cleaning supplies. She makes all of the products. Once she has made the products, she goes out to sell them in various places. She is requesting the loan to buy ingredients to make these products.

In this group: Ma. Esther, Justina, Rosalina, Gladys, Juana, Eustacia, Miryan, Francisca, Maria, Dominga, Marcelina, Johana, Andresa, Marcelina, Zunilda, Mirian, Mirian, Laura*
