Maria Auxiliadora Group's story

The “María Auxiliadora” committee has 10 members, all women, who for the most part work selling cheese in weekly street markets they organize. The committee is noted for being very united, responsible and above all, enterprising since the women go out to sell what they know best how to make at affordable prices.

One of the members is María who sells various kinds of cheese in the weekly street markets. She generates income this way to support her family.

She will use the loan to buy larger amounts of Paraguay cheese, Magro cheese, cheese for sandwiches, etc.

In this group: Maria, Elsa, Teodora, Juana, Maria, Rossana, Juliana, Ambrosia, Maria, Cristina*
