Tekoporave Rekavo Group's story

Tekoporave Rekavo was organized in the city of Caaguazu and was formed by the union of citizens and friends in that city. The group's name signifies “In Search of a Better Life” in Guarani, one of Paraguay's languages. The members are making an attempt at ending poverty; we should note that 8 of these women earn very loan incomes.

One member is Marlene who during the last survey, demonstrated a level of poverty within Category 1, that is, very low income. She reports that she is dedicated to selling clothing. We also have the work of the assessors who keep track of the training and testing that, in one manner or another, they require in order to motivate the women to struggle towards overcoming poverty.

Marlene is requesting this loan to buy clothing, under garments, etc., which will help her to develop a concrete business plan, which in turn, will help boost her income.

In this group: Marlene, Floriana, Elisabet, Margarita, Mirian, Tomasa, Cristina, Hilda, Fanny, Isabelina, Isolina, Marina, Gabriela
