Santa Maria Group's story

The Santa Maria group is in its first cycle. They are learning to work together. They are from the city of Curuguaty, which is a bit remote and has difficulties with access to communications. The members also fight to improve their community and so that their children have more security.

Carla, one of the members, is in sales. She has a small business, a despensa [small store], where she works every day beginning in the wee hours. She is a very hard-working person who, with much sacrifice, is growing and moving forward. Carla wants her community to keep growing and gaining strength.

She is requesting this loan to buy drinks, meat, groceries, bulk products, and other items, so that she can continue growing and giving her customers what they need.

In this group: Felipa, Dina, Pablina, Monica, Carla, Modesta, María, Nidia, Maria, Angelica, Bernarda, Sonia, Ana
