A loan of $4,300 helped a member to buy milk to sell.

Arroyo Syry Group's story

The communal bank "Arroyo Syry" is located in the city of Paraguarí. This communal bank is comprised of 17 women who decided to get together and form a group so that they could access the assistance offered by the Fundacion Paraguaya. They see this loan as an opportunity for some of them to strengthen their businesses and increase their income, and for others as an opportunity to start up a new business. In this way, the members of this group can improve their family's quality of life.

Silvina says that the group has helped her a lot; her small business is growing thanks to all of the training and loans she has received. She has a business selling milk, and she says that her day begins in the early hours of the morning, because she has to go out to deliver the milk to her customers. Silvina is a very hardworking person who strives to improve herself each day.

Silvina is requesting this loan to invest in the purchase of milk, because she wants to have a good inventory to offer to her customers. She is, once again, grateful for the help that she is receiving.

In this group: Luz Maria, Graciela, Clara, Juana, Marta, Mirna, Tomasa, Sara, Ana, Laura, Karina, Odilia, Mercedes, Rossana, Silvina, Mercedes*, Juana*
