Fortaleza Group's story

In the city of San Roque G., about 13 kilometers outside of Carapeguá, a group of women of limited resources joined the program Committees of Women Entrepreneurs.
These women are very active, and the majority of them sell their products on the streets, or participate in other activities. They are looking for a little more support through credit so they can increase their income and improve their quality of life.
They need this operation to invest in their respective jobs in order to achieve a sustainable amount of growth that allows them to develop individually and as a group.
