Crecer Group's story

This is a communal bank in the area of Encarnación. They are in their 11th cycle in the program of the women's committee. They are 15 women who seek the way to be able to offer better living conditions to their loved ones, so that they do not lack necessities.

One of them is María, who is married and the mother of two children, for whom she fights, to get them ahead. She works making sales. She has a small store where she works every day, starting early in the morning. She says that this is going very well, and through this business, she has been able to help her husband with household income and to get her children ahead.

She is grateful for the opportunity to be able to continue improving her business; this will be very helpful towards continuing to help her family.

She requests this loan to buy products for her store, such as beverages, baked goods, vegetables, fruit, canned goods, and other products to sell.
