Las Mercedes Group's story

The Las Mercedes group is in it's first cycle of the women's group program, it is in the city of Curuguaty, which is an area a little far from the central zone and is still experiencing growth. It is an area that is difficult to access, so the members of the group want to struggle to grow and give the area where they live a better atmosphere and they will keep growing slowly.

Alicia is one of the members, she has a small store business where she works, and hopes that as time passes, through the help of everyone in her area their environment may improve and thus provide greater security for their families, also to ensure a better future for them.

She is requesting a loan to buy various products for her store, to stock it and thus be able to continue with her work.
