A loan of $1,725 helped a member to buy winter clothes to sell.

Villa Armando Group's story

The Villa Armando communal bank is comprised of 15 members. All of them have a little one to whom they devote themselves with great effort and sacrifice. The ladies are very happy because they constantly help each other. Above all else, they are inspired by the great desire to continue making great efforts for their families.

Petrona is part of the group. She says that she is getting ahead and helping her family through a great deal of sacrifice. She is a very self-sacrificing person, and she works a lot selling the variety of clothes that she has. She says that she carries all types of clothes. This helps her to always offer her customers a good variety.

Petrona is asking for help from the Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva. She wants to be able to buy winter clothes. The cold is coming, and she wants to be able to fill the orders she will have.
