Arroyo Syry Group's story

The committee known as Arroyo Syry has made a commitment to stay united, always working under a framework of mutual respect. Currently they are in the 4th cycle with good standing. The group is composed of 15 women that invest in their work with the goal of elevating their standard of living.
Luz is one of these women. She sews for a living and tell us that she always has a lot of work, thanks to the majority of her neighbors always bringing her work for her to do. By means of this work she is able to help her family, giving them what they need for a better life and without deprivation.
She is requesting a loan to buy cloth, thread, lace, buttons, zippers, and other supplies that she needs to be able to continue working in a way that she can continue complying with the demands of her clients. She, like her companions, is very grateful to kiva and the Paraguayan foundation.

In this group: Mercedes, Luz , Graciela , Silvina , Clara , Karina , Juana , Marta , Mirna , Josefina , Mercedes , Tomasa , Maria , Adriana *, Sara *
