Santa Rosa Group's story

This communal bank originated from promotions that were made in the neighborhood. All of the members are from the same zone, and they are all friends and neighbors. They saw a great opportunity for progress in the Fundación Paraguaya’s program. Their objective is to work together, to promote a unified spirit, and to strengthen the group.

Celia is a member of the group. She tells us that she starts work in her grocery store very early. She tends to the customers, and she also arranges the products that she has. She tells us that she started with a little business. However, thanks to her effort, sacrifice, and work she has been able to grow and improve her business.

She comes to the Fundación to ask for some help. She wants a loan to buy groceries, drinks, canned goods, vegetables, and more. With this purchase she will be able to give her customers a good variety.
