Patricia Group's story

"Patricia" is a group in the city of Encarnación, composed of 11 women in their 4th loan cycle. All of the women are participating in the study to eliminate poverty, and none of them fall below the poverty line thanks to the work that they have been doing. One of the group members, Nancy, was categorized as "level 3" when she took the survey. Through hard work and effort she has been growing her business and maintaining her family. She has her own shop from which she serves her neighbors, and thanks to her good clients has improved her economic situation substantially.

Nancy is asking for this loan in order to buy good such as drinks and dairy products in bulk. This way, she will be able to continue providing her clients with the goods that they need.

In this group: Gladys, Margarita, Nancy, Zunilda, Lidia, Mirtha, Perla, Ramona, Marcia, Noelia, Lidia
