Maria Auxiliadora 2 Group's story

This communal bank named Maria Auxiliadora 2 is a group comprised of 12 women. All of them are friends and neighbors who came together with the drive to get ahead and support their families. They wish to provide their families with everything they weren't able to have, and that's why they always strive to the max. Josefina is part of this group. She's a very self-sacrificing person and a fighter. She's the breadwinner in her family and she always works hard for them, so that she can give them everything they need in order to live with dignity and without deprivation. She sells all kinds of garments, such as shirts, jackets, jeans and other items. By doing this she has the necessary means to pay for her daily expenses. She requests the loan in order to purchase winter clothing, since the cold season is coming and she wants to stock up her business. She gives thanks to Kiva and Fundación Paraguaya for the great opportunity that she and her friends are receiving.
