Tekoporave Rekavo Group's story

The group named Tekoporave Rekavo was formed by friends and neighbors who joined together in the city of Caaguazú. They want to improve their quality of life and that of their loved ones. They are in their sixth loan cycle in the women's committee program. They are also in the poverty elimination program.

Mirny is one of the members of this committee. She has a store with all sorts of products that she offers to her customers. She mentions that these days she has an established customer base who always purchase from her.

She states that she is partnered and has 3 children, who are her primary motivation for struggling and for whom she seeks the way to be able to grow and get ahead. Despite the difficulties, she has not given up and struggles to be able to better herself and improve her quality of life.

She asks for this loan to purchase products for her store, such as vegetables, baked goods, meat, fruit, and other products.
