A loan of $4,950 helped a member to buy clothing to sell.


San Blas Group's story

This group from the city of Encarnación was established in 2011. The members are in their sixth loan cycle and are working together so that they can move forward and continue growing. These women are the heads of their households, so they strive to provide everything for their families.


One of the group members is Sra. Carmen. She has five children and is married to Sr. Aurelio. Carmen has been selling clothes for several years. Thanks to the work she and Don Aurelio have done, they have been able to help their children and provide them with what they need to have a full life.


Carmen is requesting this loan so that she can buy all types of clothing in order to offer a wide variety to her customers. She knows that this will also help her to attract more customers.
