A loan of $2,475 helped a member housing payment.

Amistad Group's story

The "Amistad" community bank is located in Ciudad del Este and consists of 16 women. They are working with great expectations in their sixth loan cycle. Each member is working with great satisfaction since the activities that they are carrying out are helping to improve their families' quality of life.

This is the case with Señora Dominga, who runs a canteen with drinks and food in front of her home. She manages very well in her business and administers her income well.

Now she is making the monthly payment for the property where they live. She is applying for the loan to make the payment, since the income generated by her business and by her husband have been used for other household expenses.

In this group: Dominga, Andresa, María, Felicita, Isabelina, Dionisia, Lucia, Zunilda, Ramona, Geronima, Elena, Emilce, Virginia, Maria, Norma*, Luz*
