La Esperanza Group's story

The committee came together thanks to Emilia who had started a different committee previously but it disbanded. She decided to invite her friends and neighbors to form a new group. Currently, the committee is in its second cycle in Fundación Paraguaya’s program. It has 15 members who invest in different activities like Andrea, who is group President.

She is 21 years old and is lives with Amalio who is a Bricklayer. They have a son and she invests her profits buying various goods at wholesale to later resell.

She is a very longsuffering woman despite her youth. At not having enough money to buy the quantity of products she needs for commerce she asked for a Kiva loan to buy her merchandise in order to sell them in better quantities and quality.

In this group: Andrea, Emilia, Edith, Lidia, Maria Luisa , Candida, Tarciana, Evelina, Mariela, Rosa, Ceferina, Maria Santa, Maria Reina, Shyrley, De Los Santa
