Jesus Misericordioso Group's story

This group is formed by 13 members from the city of Encarnación. The group is learning to work in a team and they wish to be able to work together to help their families.

One of the members, Lidia, is married to José, who is a chauffeur; they have 2 children for whom both provide for day by day. Lidia makes a living selling clothes, which allows her to help her family get ahead. Her wish is to be able to have a greater variety of clothing to sell and this way help her husband by generating a little more income.

She is requesting a loan in order to stock her business with a variety of clothes, which she will be able to her customers. She appreciates the help she is receiving from Kiva and Fundación Paraguaya.
