A loan of $1,875 helped a member to buy supplies for her beauty salon.

Claudia Griselda's Group's story

The committee has 12 members from the city of Encarnación; they’ve been clients since May of last year and have an excellent payment history. The committee has a lot of experience working as a group since they’ve been working together for a long time. They see Fundación Paraguaya’s program as a great help.

One of the members is Mercedes, 33. She has a son and is a single mother. She works in a beauty salon and also sells groceries and this is her only source of household income. Because of this she joined her neighborhood committee so that with help from Fundación Paraguaya she can get ahead through joint efforts and get ahead because she’s alone and that way is very difficult.

She asked for the loan to buy hair coloring, nail polish, scissors, combs and other supplies to stock her shop since it’s her means of support. She’s very grateful for the opportunity she’s receiving.

In this group: Claudia Griselda, Mercedes, Paulina , Carmen , Andrelina , Celia , Teresa , Maria , Beatriz , Ildefonsa , Venancia , Hermelinda
