Sagrada Familia Group's story

Teofila L. D. A., who lives in the town of Villarrica, formed this committee. The group were delighted to join the 'Comité D. Mujeres Rurales' (Committee of Rural Women) program, naming their group "Sagrada Familia" (Sacred Family). Mariela Lujan is an itinerant sales vendor who sells clothes. She has been in this line of work for several years. As she has many customers, she would like to be able to cater to their individual tastes and needs. For this reason, she is requesting a loan, so that she can buy more fashionable clothes (shorts, t-shirts, pants, shirts, etc.) and have a wider range of merchandise so that her customers have more items to choose from. All the members of this committee are keen to make progress with the financial help that they receive from Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva.

In this group: Teofila, Mariela Lujan, Ana Mabel, Eresmilda, Olga Maricel, Florinda, Dolli Emilce, Liz Graciela, Juana Maria, Elsa*, Juana Antonia*
