La Hermosa Group's story

The group called "La Hermosa" was formed by the coming together of friends and neighbors in the city of Luque. They are searching for a way to improve their quality of life, and that of their loved ones. They are in the 38th cycle of the Committee of Women program.

Among them, Ana stands out. She works in sales, and has a grocery store in which she offers her customers good quality products at good prices.

She says that her work is her means of earning a living, and that with this she helps her family and looks to give them all that she could not have, so that they do lack for necessities, which is what happened to her. She says that, due to the pandemic Covid-19, and to the total quarantine that the Paraguayan government decided upon, her sales have decreased.

Ana says that she wants to invest in her business to be able to build it up again and continue working to help her family, so that they do not lack for necessities. She is requesting this loan to be able to buy flour, oil, rice, sugar, milk, fruit and vegetables. She is grateful for this opportunity to invest in and improve her business, which will be of great help.
