A loan of $4,825 helped a member to buy beverages to sell.


Santa Lucia Group's story

The women of communal bank SANTA LUCIA decided to become involved with Fundación Paraguay to improve their lot. The institution offers an excellent opportunity to energetic women willing to work hard for a better future for their families. Emilia is one of these women. She sells all types of beverages like wine, soda, whiskey, energy drinks, and others. Her sales are good because her location is good. She has always fought to get ahead, and she shows that by providing the best for her family every day.

Emilia dreams of having a larger business and offering her customers a bigger selection, thereby making more money. She is applying for the loan to buy beverages to stock her store and continue working as she does now.
