Manduara Poty Group's story

The Manduara Poty communal bank was started with the initiative of Rumilda. Now they are on their third loan cycle, with 13 members. They are 40 km from Curuguaty, in a more remote area that is very difficult to access. Rumilda, one of the members, says that she has a mini-food store. She works there starting early in the day, and this is how she makes her living. She says that everything she does is for her family. She works for them and she works harder every day. In the not-too-distant future, she wants her neighborhood to improve and be safer for children and families. She is asking for this loan to buy things for her store, like soft drinks, vegetables, fruits, bulk goods, and more, since those are the things that sell the most.
