San Antonio Group's story

This committee was formed thanks to the efforts of Sra. Mercedes, who is from Ciudad del Este. She learned about the program offered by Fundación Paraguaya and contacted her neighbors and friends about forming a local committee. What resulted was the formation of the committee named “San Antonio”, which currently has 16 members. They are participating in their third loan cycle.


All of the members have joined together so that they can generate more income to support their households. They do everything they can to create a better future for their families.


Sra. Lilian operates a beauty salon in the neighborhood where she lives. Through her efforts, she has been able to move forward and earn a little more income. Her beauty parlor has been a great help. She dreams of someday expanding her business so that she can accommodate more customers. Lilian is requesting a loan to buy supplies that are used in her salon such as gel, hair spray, and other products.
