La Amistad Group's story

The group named “La Amistad” is from the city of Paraguarí. Its members are unified and supportive of one another as they work together in all of their activities. This helps them become stronger as a group and allows them to work as a team. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected the entire world, the members indicate that their work has been affected, as well as their incomes. They still look for ways to excel and move forward.

One of the members is Angelica, who works as a seamstress. She says that she has a modest shop where she begins her work early in the morning. Angelica indicates that she was affected by the pandemic, so she was not able to work normally nor generate the necessary income to cover all of her obligations.

She is requesting a loan to buy fabrics, thread, elastics, and other supplies so that she can continue her work and satisfy her customers. As a result, she will be able to restart her business.
