8 De Diceimbre Group's story

The communal bank “8 de Diciembre” (8th of December) has been organized for more than one year and works with the Fundación Paraguaya. Its members are already performing productive activities. They are very hardworking women who dream of a better future for their families and for their children.

Nelida is part of this group. She is a very self-sacrificing person that struggles each day for her family's daily bread in order to be able to help them. She works recycling products like plastic, paper, bronze and so on which she collects and sells. She also buys and then resells them and thus she has better advantages and profits.

She is requesting this loan to be able to invest it in the purchase of plastic, paper and so forth in quantity in order to be able to resell them and have greater earnings in order to continue helping her family.

In this group: Carmen, Ramona, Alejandra, Elisa, Nelida, Maria, Viviana, Carolina, Melissa, Victoria, Angelica, Martina, Viviana, Cinthia*
