Fortaleza Group's story

Fortaleza is a group in the City of Encarnación. They have been working together for 19 cycles. They are very hardworking women who are giving everything of themselves in order to be able to learn and through that knowledge improve their undertakings. They are doing the survey of poverty elimination in order to be able to know the situation of every one of them and in that way continue working.

One of the members of this group is Gladys, who has a well-stocked grocery store where she provides her customers with high-necessity products. She is very selfless, and day after day she starts to work at very early hours, until very late at night. She is requesting this loan to be able to invest it in the purchase of sodas, milk products, vegetables and other food products in order to continue with her sales.

In this group: Ninfa, Rosana, Gladys, Mercedes, Erika, Francisca, Teresa, Nilda, Cecilia, Juana, Nidia, María, Gabriela, Natalia*, Celsa*, Celia*
