Akarapuara Group's story

The Akarapuara Group is comprised of 10 women from the city of Curuguaty and they are now in their second loan cycle. With a lot of effort and sacrifice, they are getting ahead and they are supporting each other. This is a very close-knit group that is known for hard work.

Lucia has a store in which she works every day and she begins working early in the morning. She always has a lot of customers at all hours. Thanks to her good attitude and her great customer service, she has managed to get ahead.

She is seeking a loan so that she can buy supplies to stock her shelves. She needs milk, sausages, cheese, noodles, sugar, and other supplies, since these are the most purchased items.

In this group: Carmen, Lucia, Águeda, Dora, Zulma, Nancy, Purificación, Perla, Silvina, Zunilda
