Santa Ana Group's story

The committee named “Santa Ana” was formed as a result of several neighbors from the city of Choré joining together. All of the committee members have independent business activities. They are from a remote neighborhood that has little access to certain forms of communication. The area is very rural and still under development.

One of the members is Sra. Mariela. She has a variety store where she sells all types of products including clothes, various sundries, and other items. Through her business, she has been able to improve her quality of life. Mariela wants to invest her loan in her business. She wants to buy clothes and various sundries so that she can continue working.

On the weekends, the group organizes fundraising activities, such as selling Paraguayan soup and hosting bingo games. This enables the group to help one another if any of the members encounters some difficulties.

In this group: Cristina, María, Antonia, Mariela, Mirta, Liz, Dominga, Gloria, Celina, Damiana, Marisa, María, Rosa*
