A loan of $5,050 helped a member to buy supplies for her sewing business.


La Cuadrita De Mi Barrio Group's story

The LA CUADRITA DE MI BARRIO community bank is embarking on its thirteenth round of funding, in conjunction with Fundacion Paraguaya's Mujeres Emprendedors program. The bank has 17 members, all of whom operate their own businesses. Our member, Juana, is a seamstress. She makes and sells dresses and other clothing pieces. She tells us that she always has work because she takes care of her customers and that, she adds, is the best advertising of all. Juana is applying for a loan that she will use to buy the supplies she needs--fabric, thread, etc.--to carry on her business and, in turn, continue to make an honest living.
