A loan of $1,850 helped a member to purchase supplies for her work at a hair salon.

Barrio Alegre Group's story

The "Barrio Alegre" [Happy Neighborhood] committee came about as a result of advertising done in the members' neighborhood. All the members are from the same area, neighbors and acquaintances of the area. They each share the objective of working, helping create a spirit of mutual support, and arriving at the program's highest level.

Ms. Dora is the group's chair. She earns a living in commerce and in her free time works as a beauty salon employee. She wishes to progress with Fundación Paraguaya and hopes the group may be strengthened day by day. She asserts that she is quite happy in her committee and expects many additional benefits as the Foundation is offering them on a regular basis.

She seeks a loan in order to purchase supplies for the beauty salon, such as shampoo, rinses, hair coloring, nail polish and other items. They all appreciate the opportunity that has been given them.
