A loan of $1,350 helped a member to buy fruit to make fruit salad.

San Pedro Group's story

San Pedro is a group in the city of Asunción that is comprised of 13 women who are all friends and neighbors in the city. They joined the Fundación Paraguaya's program because they saw it as a great way to obtain support for their businesses. They are currently in their first loan cycle and their goal is to reach the top level of the program.

We can talk about Mrs. Liz who lives with her five children in a humble dwelling, and through her hard work and sacrifice, provides for her family. She sells fruit salad on weekends. Liz defines herself as a hard-working, enterprising person who has always struggled to get ahead, meeting challenges head on. She works hard every day to give the best she can to her children so they do not have to go without like she did.

The loan she is requesting is to buy fruit such as apples, bananas, oranges, melons, plums and other types of fruit. This is so she can continue working to support her children.

In this group: Liz, Maria, Maria, Marta, Mercedes, Vicenta, Blanca, Tania, Teodolina, Deisy, Tomasa, Nadia, Lucy
