Niño Jesus Group's story

This group, from the city of Encarnacíon, is on its third loan with the "Comité de Mujeres" (Women's Committee). The group includes 17 women who came together to work, but at this time only 15 of them are taking out a loan. One of the members of the group is Mirian. She has a pantry in her house where she has all kinds of basic essential goods, which are needed by her neighbors. She is married to Eligio, who works for a company. They have 2 children, on whose behalf they both work relentlessly so they can give them everything they need to have a life without deprivation. Mirian says that thanks to her group and the support of her friends, she has been able to grow a lot and progress. She is asking for this loan to be able to invest in buying goods for her pantry to sell, such as meat, vegetables, baked goods, dairy products, etc.

In this group: Teresa, Ofilia, Mirian, Marisol, Paola, Andrea, Ignacia, Adriana, Mirian, Luisa, Cantalicia, Maria, Rosana, Braulia, Maria
