Divino Niño Jesús Group's story

This committee was formed by Mrs. Albina L., who brought attention to the program and decided to expand in the Jose Maria Alfonzo Godoy neighborhood. The women in the committee are very modest and are hard workers. They learned to value working as a group and they perform different community activities to support each other. They are independent in their work activities such as clothing sales, food sales, ice cream sales, first aid, etc. Each person receives an average loan of 386,000 guarani to invest in the purchase of their products.
