San Blas Group's story

San Blas is a group formed in Asunción. It is made up of 12 members who are hardworking women and above all very entrepreneurial with a lot of enthusiasm and a desire to get ahead. They want to be able to help their families to have a better future without deprivations.

Andrea is one of the members. She tells us that she makes a living sewing. It's a trade in which she has worked for a long time and in which she has much experience. Thanks to the time that she has been working in this area she has been able to form a defined clientele which has generated a very good income. Her goal is to be able to continue growing and expanding her workshop.

She is requesting the loan to be able to buy fabric and thread, with which she will be able to continue working and in this way continue helping her family from day to day.
