Barrio Alegre Group's story

Barrio Alegre [Happy Neighborhood] is a group in the city of Caacupe, where the members saw a great opportunity for progress for themselves and their families. They are 24 women who make an effort day by day to get ahead.

Nicasia is one of these women, and she says that thanks to her group she has succeeded in improving greatly and moving forward. Her family has benefited and her business has gotten better. She makes a living selling fruits and with this business she is giving her family all that they need, so that they do not want for anything.

She is requesting this loan to buy seasonal fruits, such as bananas, pineapples, oranges and others.

She is grateful to all of the members for the opportunity they are offering her, since they help each other to grow.
