Guarapi Group's story

The Guarapi Group is in its third loan cycle of the women’s committee program. In this program, everyone is striving to get ahead and to help each other through teamwork. The members are all fighters and, above all, entrepreneurs.

One of the members of the group is Blanca, who has an event decoration business. She says she has gained a very good following of customers because she always does a good job and her customers are very satisfied with her work. Her dream is to have a large decoration shop, from which she could continue to meet her customers’ needs.

Blanca is requesting this loan to buy decorative fabrics to better serve her customers. She and her friends are grateful for the opportunity they are being given, because it not only helps them, but their families as well.
