Tembiapora Group's story

The group called Tembiaporä is from the city of Paraguarí and they're in their fortieth loan cycle. They're united and supportive of each other. They work together on activities to be able to keep on improving and strengthening so they can improve their quality of life and that of their loved ones.

One of them is Nilsa, who is also the president of the group. She's a hardworking person who works making and selling food, and she says this has enabled her to get her loved ones ahead, especially her husband and her son. She and her husband help each other so they can cover their daily expenses and so their son doesn't suffer any hardship in the future.

She's requesting this loan to buy ingredients for making her dishes, such as vegetables, bread, canned goods, condiments, chicken, cheese, and other products.
