Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

The group called “Mujeres Emprendedoras” (Enterprising Women) is in its first loan cycle with the Women’s Committee Program. These industrious women are learning how to work together. All of them are very excited about growing each of their businesses. They are from the city of Curuguaty, which is in a remote rural district that is still under development.

Sra. Antonia is a hardworking and enterprising person. She strives each day to provide her family with everything they need so that they don’t have to experience being without like she had to endure. Antonia is a seamstress, but she also makes all types of jewelry that are of very good quality. She dreams of someday having a successful workshop that is well-equipped with various machines. Antonia says that she wants her community to keep growing and improving.

She is requesting this loan so that she can invest in fabrics, thread, rubber, buttons, zippers, and other items. This will enable her to continue sewing so that she can do good work for her customers.

In this group: Liz, Diana, María, Antonia, Hermelinda, Atanasia, Apolinaria, Claudia, Rocío, Johana, Adriana, Elvira, Justina, Carmen, Dora*
