A loan of $4,950 helped a member to buy feed and small animals to raise.


Santa Librada Group's story

The Santa Librada communal bank was started with the initiative of Cirila. Currently, they are on their fourth loan cycle with 16 members. They are 35 km from Curuguaty. Cirila, who is also the chairwoman of the group, says that she always tries to motivate her friends to strive and work, not only for their families, but for the community, since they are in a very remote area. Cirila works raising and selling farm animals, like goats, cows, hens, and more. She says that this is difficult, full-time work, because she always has to look after her animals. She is asking for this loan to buy feed for her animals and also to buy small animals to raise.

In this group: Cirila, Nancy, Alicia, Sandra, Maribel, Cesarina, María, Cecilia, Francisca, Andresa, Angela, Mirna, Zulma, Sonia, Nilda, Jorgelina
