A loan of $2,700 helped a member to purchase rugs to sell.

Emprendedoras De Ybyrapyta Group's story

Norma started the Emprendedoras Ybyrapyta community bank, which is currently in its 5th loan cycle. They are responding to the poverty elimination survey. Six members are below the poverty line, which means that they have very low income, but this motivates them to continue working.

Norma sells rugs. She considers herself to be a person who fights and works hard. She always makes an effort to innovate and have better products so that she can grow. She makes an effort to improve her life and that of her family since her work means that they do not need to experience any hardship.

She is requesting a loan to purchase rugs, which she will use to continue with her sales so that she will have a better income and be able to invest in her small business.
