Barrio Maria Auxiliadora Group's story

The group Barrio Maria Auxiliadora is made up of 19 adult women. They live in La Compañía Cabañas in the city of Caacupé.

The group is in their tenth cycle of receiving an average of 578,000 PYG ($113) per member. They bought products such as rice, milk, meat, noodles, soft drinks, seeds for planting, and new and used clothes. It requires a lot more effort to market these products in the streets as some of the members do.

This group is very united. Every week end they carry out activities to increase and capitalize upon the group’s savings.

All of the group members are grateful to the Fundación Paraguaya for the support they are receiving. They are grateful not only for the loans they have received, but also for the good advice. They appreciate the opportunities offered to create small businesses that generate economic resources and employment for family members.
