A loan of $2,300 helped a member to buy shampoo, conditioner, dyes, nail polish, and other supplies.

Las Roseñas Group's story

The women in the communal bank are from the city of Caacupé. They are very hard-working people. They are very grateful to the Fundación because, thanks to the ease of getting the loans, they are able to access them. This way some invest in their businesses, and others start a business activity. All of them wish to work and help their families.

The Las Roseñas communal bank started because of the promotions that were done in the members’ neighborhood. All of them are from the same zone. They are neighbors, and they know each other. This group’s objective is to foster an enterprising and supportive spirit in order to arrive at the highest level of the program.

Julia is one of the members. She tells us that she has a beauty parlor. Thanks to her beauty parlor she is able to help at home. Life is harder each day, and thanks to her good service she has an established customer base. This helps her a lot.

She is requesting the loan to buy shampoo, conditioner, dyes, nail polish, and other indispensable supplies for her beauty shop. She, like her friends, is very grateful for this opportunity to make progress that the Fundación gives her.
