Tajy Poty Group's story

In Yaguarón some women got together with the goal of increasing their working capital and undertaking business activities. They went on to plan a meeting in order to learn more about the loan program, as it seemed interesting and a good opportunity for obtaining credit.

The committee is called Tajy Poty and is currently in its second cycle. Its members comprise 18 dedicated women who outdo themselves day after day to increase their earnings and thus offer the best to their respective families. All the members are very hardworking and have invested their loan monies in their respective businesses.

One of the members is Juana who has as her business the sale of general items for the home. She has a lot of experience due to the length of time she has had the business. Through her good management her business is growing and she now has a large customer base.

The loan is requested for purchasing canned goods, cleaning supplies, hardware items, books and pharmaceuticals.
