Ocampo Poty Group's story

The Ocampo Poty group is participating in its 2nd loan cycle within the Women's Committee program. The group is from the city of Caaguazú and every one of its members wants to grow, not only in a financial sense but also in a personal sense.

Mirtha is a member of this group. She has a small grocery store business and hopes to grow her business over time with the help of her group, Fundación Paraguaya and through her own hard work. This is the only means she has for helping her family. She describes herself as a person who has to work hard every single day.

Mirtha is requesting this loan to invest in buying fruit, vegetables, meat, baked goods, bulk goods and other basic household products with which to stock her business so that she can give her customers what they ask for.

In this group: Maria, Maria, Maria, Fabiola, Rumilda, Porfiria, Nelida, Maria, Bety, Ventura, Liliana, Feliciana, Silvia, Saturnina, Gloria, Ignacia, Mirtha, Clara, Nancy, Saturnina, Antonia
