Poaju Group's story

This committee was established in the neighborhood of Bernardino C. in the city of Caaguazú. Sra. Norma Elizabeth Z. participated in an informational meeting and liked the idea of forming a committee in her area. She invited responsible women who were excited about forming a group so that they could work together and apply for a solidarity loan from Fundación Paraguaya. These same ladies want to make progress on a personal level and with their families. They struggle each day to make this possible.

Sra. Zunilda sells jewelry. She buys her merchandise in Luque at low cost and then sells it in Caaguazú in order to earn a little bit of money so that she can support her children. Zunilda is well-known for her local business. Due to the beauty and quality of the jewelry she offers, she has been able to increase her customer base.

The loan she is requesting will be used to increase her inventory of jewelry that she offers so that she can earn more income. Her goal is to have her own jewelry store someday.

In this group: Norma Elizabeth, Nancy, Zunilda, Mariza, Fidela, Elizabeth, Lourdes Virina, Mary Luz, Basilia, Liz Mabel, Silvina, Ramona, Perla Ramona, Zulma, Fermina*, Francisca*
