Mujeres Trabajadoras Group's story

The “Working Mothers” Committee was formed by uniting various neighbors in the Santa Librada barrio of the city of Villa Elisa. All committee members carry out activities independently, as are their sales.

The members make up a very united group, capable of acting together. Since the majority are dedicated to sales, they are actually colleagues. All committee members are mothers who are dedicated to their activities for the purpose of strengthening the household economy and developing their enterprises in a sustainable manner.

One example is Mrs. Ramona B. who sells colothes. She travels to Market 4 in the city of Asunción to buy merchandise and resell it in her barrio in the City of Villa Elisa. To do this, she visits customers in different zones and, actually, she can count on many customers who pay weekly or monthly for her merchandise.

Here are their activities:
1 Ramona B. Clothing sales 2 Daniela A. Sells meals
3 Evelyn M. Provisions store 4 Arninda B. Sells fruit
5 Olga A. Lottery sales 6 Aida S. Sells drinks
