A loan of $1,275 helped a member to buy animals to raise and feed for them.

Santa Rosa Group's story

The Santa Rosa Communal Bank of the city of Villa Ygatimí is in the first loan cycle of the Programa Comité D. Mujeres Rurales, of the Fundación Paraguaya, with a total of ten members. All are responsible and dedicated women who make an effort through their work every day so they can help their families and children. They are heads of household who bear the responsibility of taking care of their families.

One of the members is Juana, who has worked raising chickens for a long time already. She comments that her work is very selfless, since she always has to devote her time to her animals so they do not get any illness. She says the animals she raises sell well, which is why she wants to continue investing in them.

She is requesting the loan to buy little chickens to raise and later sell. She also will buy feed for them.

She is grateful for the opportunity that the foundation is giving her.

In this group: Ursulina Dolores, Pastora, Veronica, Vidalia, Elizabeth, Fermina, Maria, Blanca, Juana, Estanislaa
