Las Marias Group's story

The communal bank "Las Marias" is in its 5th loan cycle in the Women's Committee Program of Fundación Paraguaya. The members are taking the poverty elimination survey to understand the situation of each one of the members.

Eva is a very hardworking person who has a business selling cosmetics. She states that at first it was a little difficult, but over time she gradually attracted customers and gained confidence, becoming the good small businesswoman that she is today. She works hard and struggles to increase her income and improve each day.

Eva is requesting this loan to invest in cosmetics from a variety of brands. This way, she can continue with her sales, attract more customers, and continue working. The members of this group are grateful for this opportunity that they are receiving, because it will be a great help to them.
