Boqueron 2 Group's story

"Boqueron 2" is a group in Ciudad del Este that is in its 4th loan cycle. Thanks to the effort of all of the group members, none of the women report income below the poverty line - their work has allowed them to grow their businesses and get ahead.

One of the group members is Maria, who in the last poverty survey reported a poverty level of "2". She tells us that every day she begins her work very early, selling all types of foods. She tells us that business is going well, as she is skilled at making food and her clients are always satisfied. She really appreciates the opportunity she has received by being part of this lending group, as it has helped her very much with her business.

Maria is currently asking for this loan in order to buy more ingredients for food preparation - vegetables, meat, condiments, and more. This way, she will be able to continue providing her clients with the food they enjoy.

In this group: Rosa, Mirian, Maria, Marli, Norma, Placida, Shirly, Maria, Margarita, Rosa, Nancy, Valentina, Ramona, Maria, Maricel, Gertrudis, Maria, Ninfa*
