4 De Mayo Group's story

The "4 de Mayo" communal bank is on its sixth loan cycle. The group is made up of twelve women, doing different types of work. The group came together as a result of advertising in the area. The women are from the city of Paraguarí.

One woman worth mentioning is Carolina who, through her fruit sales is prospering and helping her family. She is a fighter and would soon like to have a big fruit shop to continue working.

She is applying for this loan to buy fruits so she can go on providing her customers with fresh fruits.

In this group: Felicia, Yenny, Martina, Pastora, Hermelinda, Aurora, Adelaida, Carolina, Asuncion, Maura, Angela*, Dionisia*
