Las Amigas Group's story

The Mujeres Emprendedoras committee “Las Amigas” live in the neighborhood of Kennedy in the city of Caacupé. The committee is composed of 18 members, all from the same area, and they are actually in the twelfth cycle of the program Committee of Mujeres Emprendedoras at Foundation Paraguaya.

They benefit from the training each cycle where they learn themes of integration: self-esteem, savings, and budgets. The institution also benefits from the operative capital that increases to an average daily amount of 860.000 Guaraníes from each member. The money spent by the Fundacion goes directly towards the accompaniment and growth of each business mentioned above.

All the members are thankful that the Fundacion has given them so much support despite the fact that these women have very little resources and belong to a marginalized group that limits their opportunities.

In this group: Sandra, Juana, Nilsa*, Estela, Candida, Sixta*, Griselda, Stela, Ermelinda, Bernarda, Taciana, Natividad, Gladys, Herma, Doralicia, Memiliana, Epifania, Liz Mariela
