Tesai Group's story

This communal bank is named Tesai in honor of the small health foundation in the neighborhood. The members are grateful for the opportunity the Fundación Paraguaya is giving them. It is through this program that they have the possibility of helping their families and of increasing their income. They are currently in their fourth cycle with 15 members.

Antonia is one of the members. She sells cleaning products that she makes herself. She says that it is going very well for her. People really like the products that she makes because they are of good quality and economical. She is described as an enterprising and very hard-working woman. Her family always supports her and inspires her to continue growing and improving.

She is requesting the loan to buy the chemicals that she needs to make the cleaning products that she sells. She will buy things like chlorine, essences, fragrances, bleach, and others. She is grateful to the Fundación and Kiva for the opportunity to progress that they are giving her and her colleagues.
