A loan of $1,675 helped a member to buy winter clothes.


Cañaveral Group's story

The “Cañaveral” (sugar cane plantation) committee is from the city of Lambaré and currently has 12 members. All of them work very united and happy within the program. They came together with the objective of growing not only economically but also as people though teamwork with the other members.

The women who form the committee stand out for their sacrifice and their desire to make progress. Many of them are single mothers who start their days from very early hours bringing their products to the city of Asunción, capital of Paraguay, to be sold.

Marciana sells second hand clothes. She comments that she has many sales, especially during the cold season that’s approaching because people ask for coats a lot. She considers herself to be very hard working and tenacious, always working, and through this work she realizes that she can get ahead with her family.

She asks for the loan to buy winter clothes to meet customer demand. She is very hopeful with the loan because it will be of great help to her.
