A loan of $3,225 helped a member to buy fabric for dressmaking.

Santa Teresa Group's story

The Santa Teresa group is in its fourth cycle of the Women's Committee Program. It is made up of fifteen women, but only fourteen of them are applying for this loan. They are participating in the Poverty Elimination Survey to understand the situation of each one of them. The survey showed that two women have a very low income.

One of the members is Salvadora, who is the group's president. She says that she always tries to motivate her fellow members, encouraging them to grow. She makes a living in dressmaking, and she says that she has a very good clientele. She always fulfills her orders with very good work, and she is able to help her family by means of her income.

She is applying for this loan to invest in fabric, because she always wants to be able to fulfill her clients' orders. She is also grateful for this opportunity which Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva are giving the group.

In this group: Salvadora, Veronica, Fidelina, Gervacia, Erma, Graciela, Zulma, Mirian, Liduvina, Isidora, Pascuala, Juliana, Elva*, Irma*
