A loan of $4,850 helped a member to purchase milk to sell.


Las Marias Group's story

The women’s communal bank called Las Marías was formed in 2008. The group, very comfortably, is already in its 12th loan cycle in a joint and supportive manner within the program. They all run businesses to raise funds and help each other to meet the common objectives they all have within the group and with Fundación Paraguaya. They actively participate in meetings and they have an impeccably supportive work record.

Mary, the president, sells milk and notes that she works from very early in the day. She is requesting a loan to purchase dairy products, which will enable her to continue stocking up so that she can meet the demands of her customers.

In this group: Mary Beatriz, Maria, Felicita , Delia , Patrocinia , Primitiva , Lucia , Nathalia , Antonia , Rosa , Natividad , Fatima , Gloria , Maria , Maria , Maria , Lorenza , Luz , Sandra , Melisia , Celina
