Ñepyytyvora 2 Group's story

This communal bank of indigenous women identify themselves with the name Ñeptyvora 2 and they are starting their first loan cycle with 14 members. Some of them are relatives or friends but all are neighbours from the same neighbourhood. As they are indigenous women they didn't all have access to loans or to forming part of a group in other institutions. However, Fundación Paraguaya has given them this opportunity, for which they are very grateful.

Bonifacia is one of the members of the group. She tells us that she makes a living raising and selling animals, such as pigs, chicken, ducks and others. She is a hard working woman and she mentions that she works every day from the very early hours of the morning until very late. She sacrifices herself every day in order to give her family all they need for their day to day living.

She is requesting this loan to buy balanced feed for her animals, with which she will be able to continue working and growing. She is very grateful for the help she and her friends are receiving.

In this group: Bonifacia, Nancy , Liz , Leonida , Brigida , Mariana , Victoria , Guillermina , Marcelina , Pastora , Fabiana , Felicia , Sonia , Esmilda
