8 De Diciembre Group's story

The communal bank 8 de Diciembre was formed and has been working with the Fundación Paraguaya for two years. Most of the members are already working in a productive activity and it is thanks to the activity that each one of them is getting ahead.

Nelida is one of the members of this bank. She joined due to the necessity of having more income to pay the various household expenses and give her family everything they need. She is a traveling salesperson selling natural remedies and she also recycles materials such as aluminum, plastic, paper, iron, etc. She yearns for a better future for her children and this is why she pushes herself every day to give them the opportunity to study and to attain a better future.

She is asking for a loan to buy natural remedies to sell so she can continue working and getting ahead through her struggles.
