A loan of $2,000 helped a member buy garden supplies like seeds, fertilizer, hoses for watering, and others.

San Roque Group's story

The San Roque de Caaguazú Communal Bank is comprised of 20 women, and they have been together for two years. As a group they have an ecological garden that provides vegetables for the consumption of each family. Each member also has their daily work. The members found out about the Programa de Comité de Mujeres through the promotional activities in the area.

The members need a small amount of capital to invest in their work in order to have a better quality of life. They are humble people. They are very united, and they wish for a better future for all. They are sure that they will manage that thanks to the help from the Fundación Paraguaya.

Nemesia, one of the members, sells fruit and vegetables at the group’s weekly fairs. She is requesting a loan to buy supplies that she wishes to use in the garden to grow vegetables.

In this group: Nemesia, Angelica, Lucila, Ana, Myrian, Teodora, Juana, Leonora, Maria , Miryan, Rosa, Valentina, Nancy, Buenaventura, Olga, Mirta, Florencia, Mirtha, Maria*, Maria
