A loan of $4,075 helped a member to buy animal feed.


Virgen De Lourdes Group's story

The Virgen de Lourdes communal bank was formed thanks to the initiative of one of the members who wanted to be able to help other women in her community and also her family. This community is in a poor, rural zone of the city of Curuguaty and the majority of the members work in agriculture. Sandra is one of these, and she says she raises and sells farm animals. Through this work, she strives to give her family what they need to have a decent life free from hardship. Sandra is a very hardworking person who strives daily to get ahead and improve her life. She requests this loan to be able to buy feed for her animals so she can keep working and striving. She is thankful to receive this opportunity to continue improving her life.
