Tacuarindy Group's story

This group is called "Tacuarindy". It was formed in the city of Paraguarí by friends and neighbors who got together. All are entrepreneurs, self-sacrificing and determined, who seek the way to be able to continue helping their families, so they do not lack necessities.

Among them, Rosa Evangelina merits mentioning. She is married and the mother of three children. She works making handicrafts. She says that, through her work, she helps her husband with household income, and she seeks the means to continue improving. She defines herself as a determined person who does not let herself be defeated and who seeks the way to continue growing.

She requests this loan to buy materials for her handicrafts, such as fabric, thread, paint, pliers, and other items.
