Mujeres Unidas De Yguazu Group's story

The loan group is called “Mujeres Unidas de Yguazú” (“United Women of Yguazú”). It is in its fifth cycle and it has 12 members. The group stands out in the neighbourhood for being very active, supportive and responsible. The lines of business of all group members depend on the facilities they have available.

Elena, one of the members, owns a pub where she sells food and drink. Every day Elena gets up very early to prepare the food and have everything ready for her customers first thing in the morning. They go to her pub in large numbers thanks to the quality of her products and her good customer service skills. She is very happy with her business and would like to invest in it, particularly in the purchase of the ingredients she uses as well as to buy drinks.

In this group: Elena, Felipa, Nancy, Antonio, Gloria, Carmen, Máxima, Irma, Arminda, Liliana, Marlene*, Dionicia*
