A loan of $3,850 helped a member to buy seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Mburucuya Group's story

The "Mburucuya" group is on its sixth loan cycle as part of the women's committee programme, where all of the members work and help each other to get ahead. The members are undergoing the poverty elimination survey in order to understand each one's own financial situation.

One member of the group is María. Her last poverty survey showed that she was at level three - this means that her situation was improving through the training she was receiving. Through her work selling fruits and vegetables, María is earning the income to be able to help her family and to give them a decent life where they need for nothing.

María is applying for this loan in order to buy seasonal fruits and vegetables to sell. This will help her to realise her business plan, allowing her to improve her income.

In this group: Mariana, Rosa, Maria, Clara, Catalina, Lina, Viviana, Zunilda, Blanca, Guillerma, Zunilda, Yanina, Carolina, Crispina, Candida, Griselda, Estela, Jessica*
