San Cayetano Group's story

The San Cayetano Group is in its second cycle of the Women’s Communal Bank Program. It is in the city of Curuguaty, a zone that is somewhat far from the central zone, and still growing. All of the members are engaged in rural activities, by which they help their families.

Señora Magdalena is one of the members. She works raising, selling, or dressing farmyard animals—something that with sacrifice, she has been engaged in for several years. She is a very hardworking person with a fighting spirit who starts her day in the early morning hours. Her dream is to be able to have a farm where she could continue with her work and have more animals to raise.

Magdalena is requesting this loan in order to invest in the purchase of feed for her animals, as in this way she will be able to continue raising them, and thus she will be able to fight for her family.

In this group: Francisca, Mónica, Magdalena, Elena, Mirna, Celia, Cirila, Teófila, Aparecida, Perla, Silvia, Rosana, Celina, Martina, Mirian, Ordina*, Celida*
