A loan of $4,550 helped a member to buy cleaning products to sell.

Tesai Group's story

This committee was started thanks to Antonia and Marina who had been members of another committee in their neighborhood. The women contacted their friends and neighbors in order to set up their own committee in the neighborhood. The committee is called 'Tesai' in honor of the small health foundation in their neighborhood. The members of the committee are grateful for the opportunity that Fundación Paraguaya are giving them as they will have new opportunities to better carry out their work, contribute to their household income and thereby improve their children's well-being.

This group currently has 22 [female] members who are on their third loan cycle. Antonia sells cleaning products. She says that she has many customers who always buy from her. She has all kinds of products which please her customers. She says that, thanks to this work, she has been able to support and help her family.

Antonia is requesting this loan to buy cleaning products so that she can stock up and have a larger variety of products available.
