Peguajho Group's story

In Yaguarón some women get together to capitalize their businesses, and others meet to launch productive businesses. The meetings are coordinated so that the members can familiarize themselves with the program. The program has been very fruitful for them, and the benefits offered keep them interested.
The committee carries the name "Peguajhó" because all the members are from the company of the same name.
Through this enterprise, the ties between the women have been strengthened. Currently, they are in their fifteenth cycle with excellent rating. The committee is made up of 20 enterprising women who put forth the best of themselves to increase their incomes and therefore offer the best to their respective families. All the members are strong women who have invested their loans into their respective businesses.
One of the women is Señora Gumercinda. She makes her living selling fruits and vegetables. It is important to mention that much of the produce that she sells she produces, as is true for other members of the committee.
She notes that all of them are very happy for the work that they are doing, and they hope to continue.
Señora Gumercinda is requesting the loan to purchase fruits and vegetables, since there a lot of sales in this season and she doesn't have enough merchandise.
