San Rafael Group's story

San Rafael is a committee of the Mujeres Emprendedoras [Enterprising Women] program of Fundación Paraguaya. This is their tenth loan. The committee has 19 members. All of them are sacrificing and fighting women, each with a family to raise.

It bears mentioning the case of Mrs. Juliana V., who has small fruit stand on Carreteras de López Avenue. She goes to the wholesale food market to buy fruit. She also sells natural juices. She has a regular and assured client base, as her products are much in demand. With the income that she makes day-by-day, she helps out her husband.

Juliana comments that she entered the committee with the idea of building her small business, and now she is achieving that goal. For that, she is grateful to Fundación Paraguaya. The committee is old, but is working hard to get ahead.
