Sagrado Corazón De Jesus Group's story

The women mentioned in this description belong to a group in the city of Caacupe. Most of these ladies grow plants on a large scale at home and sell them. Through their different activities, these humble women earn the income they need every day to support their families. All of them have made sacrifices in order to run their businesses.

One of these women is Sra. Salvadora Monzón, who sells plants. She and her husband work with plants all day to provide them good conditions so that they can be sold in different cities. The work is very tiring, but it has enabled her to provide her children an education so that they lack nothing. Salvadora wants to increase her sales and production, as well as make a few improvements to her home. She is requesting a loan to buy seeds, compost, and bags for lining flowerpots.

All of the members are grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for providing an important opportunity for them to improve their income and quality of life.

In this group: Salvadora, Ascención, Simeona, Esperanza, Isabel, Celina, Maria, Maria, Cristina, Rosalina, Maria, Hilda, Mercedes, Cinthia, Zully, Maria, Gloria, Maria*, Lidia*, Ana*
