Ikatu Group's story

“Ikatu” (a Guaraní term that means “it can be done”) is in cycle #9 in the women’s committee program. The members joined together aiming at being able to help their families and to give them everything they themselves were unable to have. They are taking the poverty elimination survey to get to know each of their situations.

One of the members is Pabla who works making crafts. She’s a very talented person and her customers are always very satisfied with the work she does for them. Her family gets income needed to continue growing by means of the crafts she makes. She wants to continue working and investing in her crafts to continue helping her family this way.

She’s asking for this loan to buy thread, paint, brushes and others to continue with her work, to improve her income and to continue working.
