Medalla Milagrosa Group's story

Medalla Milagrosa is a group of 12 women in the city of Carapeguá. They are active, hardworking, and engaged in various activities. Thanks to those activities they are able to help their families and provide them with what they need.

A very moving story is that of Maria, who is a humble woman with very scarce financial resources. She does not know how to read or write and had never had a proposal nor a loan opportunity. With this program she received that help that she was looking for in order to be able to work. She is an artisan and does embroidery on all types of products, therefore helping out her family.

She is requesting a loan to purchase needles and thread, which she will use to continue working and helping her family. She is very grateful for the opportunity she has received, as nobody had taken a chance on her before.

In this group: Carmen , Yanina , Teresa , María , Lidia , María , Isabel , Susana , Carolina , Remigia , Jorgelina , Dionicia
