A loan of $5,125 helped a member to buy fabric and thread.


Santa Lucia Group's story

The “Santa Lucía” committee is in the program’s 6th cycle; it has 19 members from the Asunción area. All of them carry out productive activities; they strive daily hoping for a better, more prosperous future for their children.

One of the members of this hardworking group is Porfiria who has worked sewing for several years. At first, it was difficult to start with this business but later as time passed she became better known and thanks to her good work is growing more each time. The help like loans and training she gets from the institution has been very useful.

She’s requesting this loan to buy fabric and thread to continue doing her work and also to fill pending orders and continue becoming well-known.

In this group: María Luz, Cynthia, Pablina, Maria Rosa, Avelina, Estela, Teodosia, Porfiria, Myriam, Marcelina, Juana, María, Marcelina, Natalia, Juana, Silveria, Nimia, Angela, Belen
