A loan of $2,075 helped a member to purchase feed for her animals.

Santa Maria 1 Group's story

The communal bank is named "Santa Maria 1". They're in their 7th loan cycle. There are 14 members, all of whom work very hard in order to support each other, and therefore get ahead and also grow.
All of the members raise and sell animals. They're self-sacrificing women who seek and wish for better living conditions for their children. Maria requests the loan in order to purchase feed, so that she can continue to feed her animals well.
She gives thanks to Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva for the help that she and her friends are getting.

In this group: Maria Antonia, Elizabeth, Celedonia, Maida, Basilia, Sara, Liliana, Marcelina, Josefina, Dominga, Luciana, Olga, Aparicia, Virginia*
