Sagrada Familia Group's story

The “Sagrada Familia” (Sacred Family) communal bank was formed by the union of 17 neighbors from the city of Mariano Roque Alonso. All of the members carry on independent business activities. They also have business activities as a group, which they do to strengthen themselves as a group. The members formed a very united group that is capable of doing all types of work together.

Luisa is one of the members of the communal bank. She is married and has one child. She devotes herself to hairdressing. She is a home hairdresser, which means that she goes to the customer’s house to be able to work when they call her. She has become very well-known this way. She now has a very good clientele. Her dream is to be able to have a place in her own house. That way she would not have to spend a lot of time away from her house.

She is asking Kiva and the Fundación Paraguaya for help to buy shampoo, gel, rinses, nail polish, combs, rollers, and other supplies to be able to keep working and meeting her customers’ demand.

In this group: Luisa Del Carmen, Lucia , Veronica , Sonia , Ydalina , Sinforiana , Maria , Felicia , Marta , Claudia , Juliana , Juana , Luz , Maria , Gloria , Marissa , Maria *
