Julia's Group's story

This group from San Juan del Paraná started through contact of one of the women with the Foundation. The group is now in its 12th loan cycle, working with the Foundation since 2005, with excellent payment history and a savings of 7.928.680 Gs. The General Director of the group is Mrs. Julia F.. Her husband works on the farm and also helps in the kiosk which is her business. The loans that she receives from the committee will be invested in purchasing merchandise (beverages such as soda pop, wine, and more) in order to stock her kiosk, which is very important for her and her family, as in this way they can get better prices and quantity. From the earnings that are generated from sales she makes the loan payment to her committee and the rest is important income for the family. All the women of the group also are actively employed: selling clothes, selling vegetables, selling eggs, selling food, seamstress, etc.

In this group: Julia, Norma, Silvia, Feliciana, Zulma, Liduvina, Mirian, Juliana, Barsilisa, Elena, Gloria, Liliana, María, Perla, Yeny, Ramona, Liliana*, Blanca*
