Loma Guazu Group's story

The women of this committee are from the city of Caacupé. The ladies are very hard working and responsible and they fully meet their obligations. They are all neighbors and friends from this city. The ladies say that they got together and formed their committee with one goal: to be able to offer their families a better life and to be able to offer them at least a minimal level of education. Juana makes handicrafts. She tells us that her mother taught her to make handicrafts from a young age. She is very proud of her work and, through her work, she has been able to support her family. Juana is requesting this loan to buy the materials that she will use to make her handicrafts such as fabric, threads, dyes, etc. Juana is placing a lot of hope in her loan as she knows that it will be very useful to her.
