Mujeres Unidas Para Triunfar Group's story
This Group ("Women united for success") from the neighborhood San Pedro in the city Encarnación was set up when one of its members contacted the microfinance institution Fundación Paraguaya. All the ladies perform productive activities such as selling food products, running a convenience store or a newspaper kiosk, selling clothes, operating a hairdressing salon, tailoring and selling school uniforms, etc. Each has an independent activity to generate her own income. So Ms Felicita A. tailors high fashion dresses for ladies, bridal gowns, dresses for quinceañeras (galas for girls' 15th birthdays), evening dresses and others. Doña Felicita's customers are very satisfied with her work. She will use her loan share to buy work tools and materials.
