A loan helped a member to buy fresh fruit to sell.


Santa Rosa Group's story

Santa Rosa is the name of this group. It was created by friends and neighbors in the city of Paraguarí, where they all strive for a better quality of life for their families so they don't have to suffer any type of hardship. They help each other and see working as a team as a means to be able to grow and get ahead together.

One of them is Librada, who gets her four children ahead by selling fresh fruit. She said she sells as a street vendor and that way has the means to be able to provide her family with a decent life without needs. Despite her problems, she doesn't give up and she looks for ways to keep growing so they don't lack for anything.

She's requesting this loan to buy fresh fruit to sell so she can continue with her business as usual.
