La Amistad Group's story

La Amistad group is the name of a group of women that was formed in the city of Ita on June 23, 2009. All of the members carry out activities for raising money, and all of them help each other to reach their common objectives within the group and with Fundación Paraguaya.

The group is very active and each of the members shows strong group solidarity, since in addition to being part of the group, all of the members are also good friends.

One of the women is Eleuteria. She is very selfless, and after saving enough money she started her business selling all types of household necessities. In addition to her store, she also makes cake and pastries to sell. Her children help her attend to her business.

Eleuteria is grateful to all of the people who have helped in some way so that she and her friends can work.

She is asking for the loan so that she can purchase rice, sugar, noodles, canned foods, baked goods, dairy products, and other items for her store.

In this group: Eleuteria, Rosa, María, Beatríz, Olga, Yolanda, Mirian, Pastora, Margarita, Elida, Lidia, Teresa, María, Teresa, Tomasa
