Cerro Verde Group's story

The committee named “Cerro Verde” (Green Hill) was formed as a result of the initiative of one of its members. The group is currently in its second loan cycle with 13 members. They are from the community of Ybyrarobana, which is 80 km from Curuguaty. All of the members of this Women’s Committee work and help one another get ahead. They live in a very remote neighborhood that is difficult to access.

One of the members is Sra. Alejandrina, who engages in farm activities such as raising and selling animals such as chickens, pigs, ducks, goats, and other creatures. Through her efforts, Alejandrina has been able to help her family even though the work is very difficult. She has been able to help her loved ones because she wants them to lack nothing. Alejandrina says that her dream is to have a farm with more animals that she can raise and sell. She is appreciative of the opportunity she and her family receive from this line of work.

Alejandrina is requesting a loan so that she can invest in the purchase of balanced feed for her animals. This will enable her to continue her small enterprise in the same manner as she has done before.

In this group: Sara, Maria, Gladys, Limpia, Francisca, Victorina, Alejandrina, Narcisa, Estela, Virginia, Florentina, Albina*, Nelli*
