Sagrado Corazon De Jesus Group's story

This communal bank is called Sagrado Corazón de Jesús (Sacred Heart of Jesus). They are on their first loan cycle and are learning to work together. They are very eager to learn and grow. They live in the city of Curuguaty, an area that is quite remote, being several kilometers from the city. Most of the members travel a long way to get to the city and it is very demanding.

Andresa is one of the members. She has a small, well-stocked food store, where she has lots of things to offer her customers. She says that she was able to start it with a lot of effort and today she has a lot of customers. She also says that she would like for her neighborhood to grow and for the city to have better access to communication. She is asking for this loan to buy vegetables, fruits, meat, and more supplies to stock her business with everything her customers need.
