A loan of $2,275 helped a member to buy nutritious animal feed.

Virgen De Fatima Group's story

The communal bank Virgen de Fátima is in its first loan cycle with the women's program. The members live in Curuguaty, a hard-to-reach and somewhat dangerous community on the outskirts of the capital with little access to the media. María, one of the members, strives to support her family through her work, which is raising and selling farmyard animals. The business is modest, but it is her livelihood, and she is trying to make it grow. She has applied for a loan to buy nutritious animal feed to continue with her business.

In this group: Marta, Josefina, Jacinta, Mirian, Nancy, Mariana, Elena, Wencelaa, María, Lorenza, Emilia, Teresa, Ernesta
