Santa Elena Group's story

The women of this group come from the Santa Elena neighborhood in the city of Tobati, which is 16km from the Caacupé regional office.


The women are very satisfied with the financial support that Fundación Paraguaya has given them. With this loan, the group members have increased both their small businesses and their income for a better quality of life.


The eleven-member group is in its 5th loan cycle.


One of the group members is Ms. Ovilia, who raises hogs for a living. She currently hopes to improve her pig pen by putting in a fence and cement floor because raising hogs requires special care and good hygiene for good production.


She is requesting this loan for the costs associated with building a pig pen, purchasing supplies like chicken wire, cement, bricks and paying for labor.

In this group: Ovilia, Teresa, Lidia, Angela, Maria, Laura, Rumilda, Olga, Lilian, Jorgelina, Maria
