A loan helped a member to purchase fabric, thread, needles among other products.


Las Costeñitas Group's story

This committee is a very united group. They all strive to be able to move forward through joint work in addition to the help provided by Fundacion Paraguaya with the committee. They are also part of the poverty elimination program.

Porfiria is one of them. She works together with her other members. She is aware that the only way to be able to overcome and to get ahead is working and striving to be able to help her family.

She is a craftsperson, weaver of ñanduti, which is a typical fabric from Paraguay, much admired by all.

She comments that her work is modest, but it has given her much satisfaction to be able to give her family a dignified quality of life not having to go without.

She requests this loan for the purchase of materials to be able to do her work, such as fabric, thread, needles, among other products.
