A loan of $3,200 helped a member to buy charcoal to sell.

Las Milagrosas Group's story

This committee (La Milagrosa) is from the town of Villa Elisa. It has 17 members who are all women. They are all friends and neighbors from the same town. They have seen in Fundación Paraguaya's program a great opportunity to make progress and so they have come together in order to improve their families' well-being.

Andresa is one of the members of this group. She tells us that her business is selling charcoal and it makes her the income she needs to help her family. She says that her sales are going very well as charcoal is very much in demand lately because it is cheaper.

Andresa is requesting this loan to buy charcoal so that she can stock up.

In this group: Maria Antonia, Maria, Myrian, Graciela, Eva, Susana, Rafaela, Cresencia, Blanca, Luz, Angela, Raquel, Andresa, Elda, Carmen, Julia, Leonarda
