A loan helped a member to buy a large quantity of charcoal to sell.


Pueblo De Dios Group's story

The Pueblo de Dios group is from the city of Caaguazú. They have set growing as a goal, not just financially, but also as people. They are making their best effort to grow and get ahead, so that they will lack for nothing.

Raquel joined this committee with the objective of improving her and her family's quality of life. She sells charcoal, and she says that it is going very well for her, because the sale of charcoal is growing and improving.

She is happy with the opportunity she is receiving to be a part of the group, because it will be a big help for her in continuing to improve and thus keep contributing to the household income.

She is asking for this loan to buy a large quantity of charcoal to meet the demand of her customers and continue growing in her business.
