San Miguel Group's story

The San Miguel group is on its second Kiva loan as a part of the Fundación Paraguaya Women Entrepreneurs program. It is a new group and with great effort they are learning and starting to work together. They are participants in the poverty elimination survey and 6 of the group members are below the poverty line, indicating that they have to continually struggle to improve their lives.

Alicia is a member of this group and during the last survey was found to be in the 2nd poverty level, meaning a medium level of income. Through her efforts, hard work, and her enthusiastic behavior as a successful woman, she will continue to improve her income level. She does this through her work selling clothing.

She will use this loan to buy various types of clothing to sell, since in this way she will be able to continue to grow and work as she always has.

In this group: Florentina, Blanca, Alicia, Irma, Zunilda, Irma, María, María, Iluminada, Yohana, Ceferina, Norma, Mirian, Luisa, Zonia*, María*, Pablina*
