Tajy Poty Group's story

The group was formed when Cecilia Pico, a member of the Medalla Milagrosa del Barrio Fátima group, talked to Zully López about forming a committee in her neighborhood. The committee López founded calls itself "Tajy Poty" and is made up of 24 very active and supportive women from the same neighborhood. The women make a living in a variety of activities, such as selling: pants, T-shirts, tomatos, onions, facial cream, apples, bananas, soft drinks, cookies, caramels, melons, watermelons, sugar, milk, oil, brooms, cleaning rags, detergents, fabric softeners, meats, empanadas, chains, bracelets, makeup, etc., and others will learn a new trade and make a fixed income. The women increased their loan request from 300,000 Gs to 800,000 Gs, and the money will be used to purchase supplies and items of primary need so they will be able to make sales.
