Las Ladys Group's story

This committee is from the city of Asunción, made up of women heads of families who fight for a better quality of life for their families so that they lack for nothing. They are also part of the poverty elimination program.

One of them is Iluminada, who makes a living selling clothes. She has a clothing fair where she offers her customers all kinds of clothing. She mentions that her work has allowed her to generate the means to help her family and give them a decent life without needs. She says that she puts all of herself into achieving her goal of being someone in life and with this being able to give the best to her loved ones.

She is requesting this loan to be able to invest in her business, since she wants to buy various clothing items for sale, such as shirts, trousers, blouses, shirts, shorts, and others to continue her work.
