San José Obrero Group's story

The communal bank San Jose Obrero consists of 11 members from the city of Curuguaty. They are currently in their 2nd cycle and have achieved this by working responsibly. As such they always come out in front with solidaity and unity amongst all. They describe themselves as very hardworking, self-sacrificing and very responsible people in meeting their obligations.

One of the members is Señora Francisca. She is a very hardworking woman whose working day starts very early. She has a store well stocked with all kinds of products. She says that she has a lot of customers as most of the people in the neighbourhood frequent her business. What helps her sell is her friendly manner with the customers. She wants to be able to grow slowly and in this way help her family.

She is asking for the loan to buy groceries, beverages, meat and other products to stock up her store to meet the demands of her customers. She is grateful to the Fundacion as obtaining the loan will be a great help to her.
