A loan of $2,075 helped a member to buy clothing to sell.

Kuña Pyryry Group's story

This communal bank has 11 members from the city of Encarnacion. They have been clients of the Fundacion Paraguaya for many years, and they have had excellent conduct. This group already has a lot of experience with group work because of the years that they have been working together. They meet every week to share, communicate and keep informed about all of the innovations that are generated within the group.

One of the members, Pablina, has a partner named Carlos and a son. She is a merchant who sells clothing. With the income she earns, she helps her husband with the household expenses. She joined the group from her neighborhood, because with the help that the Fundacion Paraguaya provides, she can continue to grow her business and in this way, continue to help her household.

She is requesting a loan to buy all types of winter clothing, because the cold weather season is approaching and she will have a lot of demand for these garments.

Pablina is grateful for the opportunity that she and her friends are receiving, because it will be a great help to her.

In this group: Madgalena, Maria, Pablina, Maria, Sergia, Rossana, Susana, Liliana, Blanca, Mary*, Silvina*
