Mangovy Group's story

Fundación Paraguaya's "Rural Women's Committee" program has formed a number of groups in the city of Curuguaty and 'Mangovy' is one of these groups. It has eleven [female] members who are all friends and neighbors from this city.

Lorenza is the president of this group and she says that all of the women are working hard and helping each other. This is how they are making progress. Lorenza has a grocery store where she works every day from very early in the morning until very late at night. Thanks to this business, she is able to help her family and has the money she needs to cover her day-to-day expenses.

Lorenza is requesting this loan to buy the supplies she needs to stock her store (meat, drinks, dairy products, baked goods, etc.)

In this group: Lorenza, Melania , Lurdes , Adriana , Juliana , María , Liliana , Míguela , Catalina , María , Arminda
