Caaguazu Poty Group's story

The Caaguazú Poty group is in its sixth loan cycle with the women’s committee program, where everyone works and helps each other to get ahead. The group is doing a poverty elimination survey – of the 16 members of the group, two were found to be below the poverty line.

One of the members of the group is Catalina, who works selling vegetables from her small stand. She says the group has helped her very much, and that the training and supervision that is given is very good. Catalina has a very entrepreneurial spirit, and with a lot of effort she is getting ahead. She wants to continue investing and working like she has been doing.

She is requesting this loan to buy various vegetables such as peppers, tomatoes, onions and others. In this way she will continue selling and have the income she needs for her family’s day-to-day expenses.

In this group: Silvia, Lourdes, Petrona, Liduvina, Clemencia, Ladislaa, Norma, Maria, Catalina, Amada, Blanca, Gladys, Victorina, Mirta, Luisa*, Reinalda*
