Cerro Guy Group's story

In the city of Yaguaron, some 22 kilometers from the Paraguari Office, a group of women meet for the purpose of funding their existing economic activities, or to begin productive activities. They gather to internalize their program, which offers very fruitful and interesting results.

The committee goes by the name of Cerro Guy (Guy Hill), because they are all friends and neighbors, and by means of this undertaking, they fortify the links between them. Presently, they are in their 5th loan cycle. The group is made up of 15 enterprising women who put forth their best efforts to augment their incomes and, as a result, to offer the best to their respective families. All the members are fighters who have invested their loans in their respective activities.

Librada, who sells drinks in a cantina in her house, comments that the loans they obtain by means of the committee, serve her well for supplying her business with merchandise, and her earnings are destined to help her family with household costs, including food, water, lights, and other expenses.

She is applying anew, to buy drinks, including wine, beer, soft drinks, and other items.

In this group: Librada, Maria*, Emilce, Rocio, Olga, Sonia, Ida, Ubalda, Clemencia, Cluadia, Liliana*, Leónidas, Rosalba, Alba*, Rossana
