San Cayetano Group's story

San Cayetano was founded by a group of neighbors and friends in the city of Carapeguá. They saw that Fundación Paraguaya's program could be a big help for them and their families. Their main objective is to be able to help their families, and in this way improve their way of life.

A story worth telling is that of Damasia, a very modest woman from the area who weaves hammocks and blankets. She has two children and her husband is a bricklayer, but sometimes they don't have enough to support their house and children. Demasia was very moved when they made her the offer, because she'd never been given this opportunity for credit, and since they've already been of so much help.

This time the group is turning to the foundation again to ask for a loan, which they want to invest in the purchase of yarn, needles, and other goods with which they will be able to continue working.
