La Union Group's story

This communal bank is formed by 10 member from the city of Encarnación. The communal bank is trying to promote teamwork. As they have only worked together for a few months they meet every week to share, communicate and take in the new changes within the group.

One of their members is Catalina. She tells us that she has a well stocked store, where her neighbours and people from nearby areas come to buy. She is a hard working and enterprising woman who has desires to progress and a great enterprising spirit. Her goal is to continue extending her store and in this way to progress as a micro businesswoman.

She is requesting a loan to buy foodstuffs, drinks, dairy products and other supplies, which will stock her store and give her a good range of products to offer.
