Santa Lucia Group's story

The contact for this group is one of the members; she was motivated by the idea of helping her friends through the Enterprising Women Program of the Fundación Paraguaya. She invited her friends and neighbors to get together, and in this way the group called Santa Lucia was started.

Mirtha has a business selling milk, and her partner, Nery, has been working as a driver for 14 years. They have 2 children who are very young and who go to school. She tells us that she works from the very early hours of the morning, since she has to deliver the milk that she sells to the tables of her customers in time for breakfast. Her goal is to be able to continue to grow her business so that she can continue to help her family.

Mirtha requests a loan to buy jars, containers and milk. In this way, she will be able to work better and offer better service to her customers.
