Buena Vista 2 Group's story

This group, from the city of Encarnación, came about when one member contacted the foundation. The group has now been working since 2012 and it is on its third loan cycle. Thanks to the work that all the members do they also now have savings which help them to continue working and to have support if necessary.

One of the group's members is Gladys. She has a well-stocked grocery store running out of her house. She is married to Nelson, who is employed at a business. They have one child, for whom both parents work hard to prosper and to make their lives better.

Gladys is applying for a loan to buy drinks, dairy products, vegetable and other supplies in order to continue working and so help her family to have a better lifestyle.

In this group: Barbara, Adriana, Patricia, Gladys, Perla, Lourdes, Marta, Leonora, Ignacia, Rosana, Liz, Eva
