Sagrada Familia Group's story

The group known as "Sagrada Familia" is in its second cycle with the Women's Committee program. The group is in the city of Caaguazú, and its members are working to grow and to give their families what they need day to day. They saw a great opportunity for progress through the committee and that is why they decided to come together.

Liz, one of the members, has a cantina at the neighborhood school. She says that she carries many types of products so that she can sell the students anything they want. She starts working very early in the morning, and says that her cantina is her source of income and the way that she helps her family.

She asks for a loan to buy snacks, hot dogs, breads and ingredients to make food for sale at the cantina. This way she will be able to keep growing her business and give her family what they need to live without lacking anything.

In this group: Felicia, Carlas, Miguelina, Visitacion, Eugenia, Sonia, Maria, Antoliana, Antonia, Patricia, Liz, Anastacia, Segunda, Alicia, Marisel, Vilma*
