A loan of $2,400 helped a member to buy clothing to sell.


Mbaapora Group's story

The communal bank "Mbaapora" is in its fourth loan cycle through the women's program in the city of Curuguaty. It is a remote area, far from the center area and in a phase of expansion so the members of the group want to work toward growth and a better environment.

Irene is one of the members of the group, and she earns a living for her family with a small clothing business. Her aim for the future, with the help of everyone in the area, is to improve the environment so families here will have more safety and a better future.

She is requesting a loan to buy clothing so she can increase her work and continue offering her customers everything they order. She wants to continue growing her business.

In this group: Graciela, Irene, Gladys, Jorgelina, María, Mirta, Clara, Ninfa, Mariela, María, Adela, Luz, Lilian, Carolina, Lidia*
