Santa Librada Group's story

Santa Libarada is a hardworking group in the city of Encarnación. They are women united in order to improve their living conditions for themselves and their families, and they saw a great opportunity in the Women's Committee program. They are part of the poverty elimination survey, which assesses each individual's income.

One of the members, Victoria, was assessed at poverty level three during her last survey, which indicates that she has improved significantly, but through hard work and continued effort she could keep improving. She has a well-stocked kiosk where she offers many things to her customers, and with the income she is able to help her family and reinvest in her business.

Victoria asks for this loan to buy snacks, food products, juices and other things that will help her to realize her business plan and improve her income.
