A loan of $1,425 helped a member to buy fabric and thread.

Virgen Del Rosario Group's story

The 'Virgen de Rosario' women's committee was created with a lot of effort in 2010. The group is now in its 4th loan cycle and its members are working together in a supportive manner within the program. In addition to their own work, each member also carries out joint activities to raise funds so that they have some capital within the group.

One of the group's members is Reina whose business is sewing. She tells us that, through this business, her family's finances have improved quite a bit as she is able to support her household and her elderly mother. She always works hard for her family as she doesn't want them to experience any hardships.

Reina mentioned that the activities that they carry out with Fundación Paraguaya are very important because they enable them to develop their work skills and self esteem, and develop on a personal level.

Reina is requesting this loan so that she can continue working as she would like to buy fabric and thread to fill the orders that she has.

In this group: Reina Beatriz, Ramona , Margarita , Genara , Lidia , Segunda , Fulgencia , Mirtha , Bonifacia , Sara , Karen , Maria
