San Pedro Y Pablo Group's story

The communal bank named “San Pedro y San Pablo” was formed by friends and neighbors from one of the cities of Carapeguá. Now this group is in its 7th loan cycle with 17 members. This is a group of very responsible and hardworking women. They have a variety of businesses, but they also carry out joint activities to develop their teamwork.

Mercedes comments than her business selling jewelry is going very well since she now has a varied clientele, as many men as women, and she always has a lot of orders. What helps her to progress is the kindness and warmth with which she attends to her customers, and in addition to this, the easy payment terms that she offers.

She requests the assistance of the Fundacion and of Kiva, so that she can buy rings, bracelets, chains, and other types of jewelry. This will help her to stock her business and have products available to meet the demands of her customers.

In this group: Jissela Maria , María , Mercedes , Mercedes , Juana , Justina , María , Noelia , Castorina , Regina , Cecilia , Cynthia , Bernarda , Nelly , Selva , María , Lourdes
