A loan helped a member to inject capital in her business and stock up on more products.


San Isidro Group's story

The San Isidro group is comprised of friends and neighbors in the city of Paraguari. The members are seeking to improve their quality of life and that of their loved ones. They are in their 19th loan cycle with the women's committee.

Zunilda is one of the members. She says that her modest grocery store business allows her to help provide for her household and family. She is a hard-working person who wants to provide her loved ones with what she never had. She says that with the crisis that hit the world with COVID-19, she has not been able to work normally and earn the income necessary to help her family, and this has led to consequences for her business.

She is requesting this loan to inject capital into her business and to be able to get more products and thus be able to invest in her business to more forward.
