A loan helped a member to buy a variety of fresh fruits to sell.


1 De Mayo Group's story

The committee named “1 de Mayo” was formed in the city of Paraguarí. All of the members are participating in their first loan cycle. They are unified and supportive of one another. By working together in various activities, they will become stronger as a team so that they can help their families.

One of the members is Griselda, who sells fruit so that she can help support her family. She is a hardworking person who sees that her loved ones lack nothing so that they can avoid going through hardship. Griselda defines herself as a determined individual who never gives up in the face of difficulty. She looks for ways to provide her family with everything that she did not have.

Griselda is requesting a loan to buy a variety of fresh fruits. This will allow her to continue her sales and satisfy her customers.
