Maria Auxiliadora Group's story

The María Auxiliadora group has sixteen members all of whom make a great effort and work hard together. The group is well-known in the neighbourhood for their mutual support which helps them reach their goals and objectives. Leonida is the president. She is the person who guides the group so they work together, do not become discouraged, and fight to achieve what they want. She runs a small cafe, and with the income from it she supports her family and provides them with the necessities for a simple but painless life. Leonida is seeking a loan to buy cookies, soft drinks, candy and other products so she has a good variety to offer her customers. She and her friends are grateful for this opportunity from Kiva and the Fundación Paraguaya.

In this group: Leonida *, Claudina *, Blanca *, Dora , Leonarda , Gladys , Nilsa , Yolanda , Justina , Eugenia , Nilsa , Severiana , Elsa , Alcida , Lucia, Antonia
