San Blas Group's story

The group named San Blas is made up of hardworking and tenacious women. They are in cycle 18 of the women's committee program. It is a committee that has been working in a united way since 2007.

One of the members is Felicia. She is a retired teacher and also an artisan. She makes ao po'i shirts (ao po'i is a Paraguayan embroidery technique) and ñanduti work (a Paraguayan embroidered lace). She is a very hardworking woman who does not let herself be defeated and always looks for a way to be able to continue helping her family through her work.
