Guayakikua Group's story

There are 14 members of this group, called Guayakikua. It was formed by friends and neighbors from the city of Caaguazú. They are also in the poverty elimination program, where they all struggle for a better future.

One of them is Gumercinda, who works in sales. She has a modest store in which she works every day from early morning. She is a hardworking person who, despite the daily difficulties, seeks the way to be able to get ahead and offer her loved ones the best. Gumercinda is happy with her committee and wants to continue with them, working together to get ahead.

She asks for this loan to purchase products for her store, such as beverages, baked goods, meat, canned goods, and other products.
