Pyapy Mbarete Group's story

“Pyapy mbarete” means “strong arm” and is made up of 14 women. They are all hardworking and work hard for their families so that their children will have a future full of opportunities that they themselves did not have.

Presentación is the group’s president, sells cosmetics, and has many steady customers who order from her because her cosmetics are of good quality and are not expensive. This is how she becomes known and attracts new customers. Presentación is a very capable and hardworking woman who makes a great effort for her family.

She is asking for this loan to buy cosmetics because she wants to have a good variety to be able to offer to her customers. The group is grateful for the assistance because it helps them to help their families.

In this group: Presentación, Adelaida, Carmen, Francisca, Maria, Carina, Celsa, Marciana, Elsa, Melchora, Yessica, Nilsa, Sandra Liliana, Sandra Liz
