Tajy Poty Group's story

Some women get together in the city of Paraguarí in order to capitalize their business activities. Others do so in order to undertake productive activities. From there they coordinate the meeting in order to familiarize themselves with the program. This has turned out to be very fruitful and interesting because of the benefits that are offered by the program. The Communal Bank is called Tajy Poty. They are currently in their fifth cycle with an excellent rating. The members are 19 enterprising women. They give the best of themselves in order to increase their incomes. They do this so that they can offer their respective families the best. All of the members are tenacious, and they have invested their loans in their respective business activities. Elva, for example, sells fruits and vegetables. Now that the fall season is starting in our country, she needs more citrus fruits. That is why she requests the loan in order to be able to stock her small sales stand. She will get more earnings that will help her family’s income.
