Yaguaron Poty Group's story

In Guayaibyty neighborhood, in the city of Paraguarí, a group of women came together in order to find out more information about the program offered by Fundación Paraguaya. As they were presented with an opportunity to enjoy a better standard of living, they decided to call a meeting in order to form a committee. The committee is called Yaguaron Poty because it was founded on Spring Day. The women pledged to remain united and to work with mutual respect for each other. They are currently in their sixth loan cycle and have an excellent record. The group has 14 members (all women) who in each previous stage have invested their loans in their daily activities. They are currently requesting a new loan to continue growing their businesses and, consequently, to continue working in a better manner. Maria Isabel raises and sells hens. This is a business which has always made her very good income as her hens are very good quality. This has helped her to support her family's finances in a stable manner. She is requesting this loan specifically to buy medicines and feed for her birds.

In this group: Maria Isabel, Ramona, Lidia, Herma, Inocensia, Maria, Mercedes, Julia, Nilsa, Delia, Maxima, Blanca, Katerine, Maria Irma
