A loan of $2,875 helped a member to buy yerba mate, eggs, meat, vegetables, canned goods and other things.


Santa Librada Group's story

This group from the city of Encarnación emerged from contact with one of the members of the foundation. They have worked with the foundation since 2011, are in their 5th cycle, and already have a small savings, thanks to all their efforts. One of the members of the group is Maria. She has a small grocery store and is married to Raul, who works as a salesman. They have 2 children, for whom they both strive in order to be able to get ahead and give their children everything that they weren't able to have. Maria says that she will use the loan she is asking for from the foundation to buy more yerba mate, eggs, meat, vegetables, canned goods and other things to better stock up her pantry. She is very grateful, as thanks to the loan she will be able to improve her earnings and her family's income.

In this group: Ignacia, Nimia, Clara, Maria, Carmen, Zunilda, Irma, Maria, Yessica, Tomasa, Clara, Laura, Cinthia, Maria, Mirian, Mercedes*, Veronica*
