Caaguazu Poty Group's story

Caaguazú Poty is in its seventh loan cycle in its women's committee, where two members are below the poverty line. This is possible to know thanks to the survey on eliminating poverty, which is a great tool to help these women. One of the members is Lourdes, who works by selling jewelry and is slowly growing. She says that there are challenges that she must overcome every day, but she works to move forward and overcome them. She defines herself as a very enterprising person. Lourdes is requesting this loan to buy sequins, thread, needles, clothespins, and other supplies to continue making and selling jewelry. This will provide her with necessary income.

In this group: Silvia, Lourdes, Petrona, Liduvina, Clemencia, Ladislaa, Norma, María, Catalina, Amada, Blanca, Victorina, Mirta, Luisa, Reinalda*
