Mburukuja Group's story

This existing committee is called “Mburukuja” and in its eleventh loan cycle.


Sra. Fernanda F. is 59 years old and has two children. She sells clothing and distributes them to stores in the city of Asunción and other locations nearby. Fernanda performs her work in the afternoons and returns home after dark. She is a hardworking and courageous woman who struggles day after day so that she and her children can move forward. Her greatest wish is to have her own store. This will allow her to provide for her household expenses and support her two children who are in school.
