Espíritu Santo Group's story

The “Espíritu Santo” (Holy Spirit) Communal Bank is comprised of 16 women in the city of Paraguarí. They formed the group after having heard talk about the enterprising women's program. They have assumed the commitment of staying together and working with the mutual respect that all of the members deserve. They are currently in their seventh cycle with excellent ratings. The members of the communal bank can be defined as hard-working and tenacious women. They all work for the good of their families. The members dream of giving their families a better future than they had. Antonio has a store where she sells all types of drinks. Through her business she has been able to support her family and generate a little more income. Her dream is to be able to one day expand her store. Sometimes there is a lot of demand for drinks, and she does not have sufficient space. She is requesting the loan to buy drinks like wine, beer, whiskey, and other types of drinks to stock her place.

In this group: Liz, Alicia, Amelia, Vivian, Antonia, Juana, Anastacia, Elvira, Mercedes, Carolina, María, Luisa, Gladys, Magdaelena*, Elisa*, Catalina*
