Rosa Mistica Group's story

The group called Rosa Mistica was formed by joining friends and neighbors from the city of Caaguazú. It is a new committee made up of women heads of family who sacrifice and help one and other so they can reach their goals as a group.

Cesarina is one of them. She earns a living selling as she has a modest grocery store. Here she works every day from early in the morning as she has a lot of customers. She mentions that she was able to start the business through great effort and it has allowed her to help her husband with the household expenses. At the same time she has been able to support her children providing them a better quality of living.

She is requesting this loan to buy a variety of products to sell in her store like vegetables, bread, fruit, canned goods and meat amongst others.
