4 De Mayo Group's story

In Paraguarí, a group of women gets together with the aim of familiarizing themselves with a program offered by Fundación Paraguaya, which turned out to be a good opportunity for them.

It is because of this that they deciD. to have a meeting in order to form a communal bank. From here arises the group known as 4 D. Mayo, which is the name of the street where they live. They have taken on the commitment of keeping the group together and working within a framework of mutual respect. Currently the group is maD. up of eleven women. They are taking out their second loan with excellent qualifications.

Justina earns a living selling milk. She says that every day she gets up very early in the morning so that the milk is at her customers' homes in time for breakfast. She says it's a job that requires a lot of sacrifice and also a lot of physical effort, but thanks to this same job she is able to obtain the necessary income to support her family. She is asking for a loan to buy milk, which will help her supply her customers so that in this way she can always have milk in stock.

In this group: Felicia, Yenny, Justina, Mirian, Angela, Martina, Leidyd, Pastora, Carolina, Hermelinda, Sabina, Aurora*
