Fe Y Alegria Group's story

Like the other women in her group, Maria keeps pushing through economic crisis in the only way she knows how: working hard. The Paraguayan phrase "Kuña Guapa," or "Hardworking Woman," describes her perfectly. The name of her trust group is "Faith and Joy," and together the women are determined to not lose either one of those in their fight for a better future.

With Maria's current loan, she will purchase materials like wood and fabric to build beds and create other carpentry products along side her husband. Other women in her group have beauty salons, are manicurists, or have general stores.
