Carmen's Group's story

Six months ago, the committee “Santo domingo” was formed. Some of the original founding members still belong to the committee and they are now very proud to be in the second cycle. The group receives financial assistance and has saved 750.800 guaranies so far.

The ladies of the committee are involved in different type of business such as running grocery stores, sales of clothing, chicken, fruits, honey, bijouterie (trinkets and ornaments) and lingerie among others. The money provided by this Kiva loan will be used to purchase merchandise in some members' cases and raw materials in others.

These ladies have one important thing in common: they all want to bring benefits to their families by working very hard and generating income. They all want to give their sons the opportunity to go to school or college.

In this group: Carmen, Rosanna, Ida, Zulma, Ana, Justina, Maria, Genara, Petrona, Mariana, Teresa, Demetria, Gabriela, Nelida, Emerenciana, Librada
