Ñanduti Group's story

The Ñanduti group is in its 3rd cycle of the women's committee programme. Five of them live below the poverty line, i.e. with very low incomes. It is possible to determine this from the poverty elimination survey which they are carrying out.

One of the members is Teresa, who was found to have a poverty level within level one in the latest survey, i.e. with very low income. However, she knows that by effort and working continually and by showing the essential characteristics of a successful woman, she will improve her poverty situation. Moreover, by selling clothing she is trying to improve her own and her family's life.

Teresa is asking for this loan to buy clothing such as knit tops, shorts, trousers, dresses and sleeveless tops etc. which will help her to set up her business plan. This will help her to improve her income.

In this group: Marcelina, Mirta, Selva, Teresa, Grimilda, Avelina, Patrocinia, Carmen, Natividad, Rosana, Maria, Daisy, Juana, Felicita, Ninfa, Nilsa
