Yguazu Group's story

The Yguazu group is in the first cycle of the Women's Committee Program, which requires all members to make a commitment to work and support each other's efforts to succeed. The members are participating in the Poverty Elimination Survey, which has determined that two of the seventeen women are below the poverty line. The members participate in ongoing training that helps them stay united and grow together.

One of the members is Señora Maria, who owns a small grocery store. Señora Maria works long hours, starting her day very early in the morning. She strives to provide her family with all of the things that she never had. Señora Maria says she wants to keep working so that her business will continue to grow and be able to employ people in her community.

Señora Maria is applying for this loan to purchase meats, drinks, and general food items.
