Hekokatuva Group's story

Seven kilometers from Carapeguá in San Roque González in Matachi, several women with low income found out about Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras (Women Entrepeneur's Committee) and decided to get together to receive information about the aforementioned program. These women are economically active. The majority are merchants who sell clothes, lingerie among the activities mentioned on this page. They seek a little more support through credit in order to increase their income and improve their quality of life. They need this loan to invest in their respective jobs and thus achieve a common and individual sustainable growth. The group has 15 members, but in this cycle only 12 will receive part of the loan.
