A loan of $1,925 helped a member to buy herbal remedies to sell.


La Costanera - San Jose Group's story

13 women make up this group, called La Costanera (The Boardwalk) - San Jose. They are in their first loan cycle. They are prepared to work together and, through the trainings, to continue growing and improving the lives of the members. They are taking the poverty elimination survey in order to find out about the situation of each one of them.

Teresa is a member of this group. She sells natural medicines such as herbs, which are very popular since people use them for tereré and mate, typical Paraguayan drinks. She says that with her work and effort, she's growing and has the means to be able to help her family.

Teresa is asking for the loan to buy natural remedies in order to continue with her sales and in that way increase her income.

In this group: Ignacia, Vanessa, Ramona, Teresa, Daniela, Margarita, Virgilia, Eugenia, Catalina, Ana, Nilda, Blasia, Ignacia
