A loan of $2,325 helped a member to buy clothing to sell.


Santa Librada Group's story

This committee has 14 members and is located in the city of Encarnación. The committee already has a little experience of team work as they have been working together for months. They meet every week to share their successes and, in this way, they are also able to face problems that arise day by day. One of the members of this group, Jorgelina, lives with Fulgencio who works for a company that produces yerba mate. The couple have two children. Jorgelina's business is selling clothing and she uses the income that she makes to help her husband with their household expenses. She joined her neighborhood committee so that, with Fundación Paraguaya's help, she could get ahead and make progress in her business. Jorgelina is requesting this loan to buy clothing which she will use to stock her business. In this way, she will be able to meet her customers' demand. Both Jorgelina and the other members of her group are grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for the help that they are receiving.
