Maria Auxiliadora Group's story

The Maria Auxiliadora Committee was formed by several neighbors from the community of Barrio 3 Tapiracuai in the city of San Estanislao (Santaní). It is starting its second loan cycle with 12 members. The group is known in their neighborhood for having members who are united, supportive, and responsible. All of them possess a great entrepreneurial spirit as they go about their daily activities in hopes of improving their quality of life.


All of the members raise animals. Sra. Zulmira serves as president of the group. She raises animals and fattens them for eventual resale. Zulmira earns her living in this manner so that she can obtain the necessary income to support her children. Since there is a good level of demand in her area, Zulmira wants to do a better job of completing her orders. For this reason, she is requesting a loan through Kiva and Fundación Paraguaya to buy balanced feed, vaccines, and medicines so that she can maintain animals that are of high quality.


All of the women in the committee are very excited to increase productivity in their business activities.

In this group: Zulmira , Irma , Cecilia , Gregoria , Isabel , Nelida , Eusebia , Zulma , Eulalia , Andrea , Maria Benita , Daisy Paola *
