Mujeres Comprometidas Group's story

Mrs. Librada of Barrio Buena Vista, Ciudad del Este initiated this Committee. She contacted her neighbors and friends to form the committee in her community. The committee is called “Mujeres Comprometidas” (Committed Women) and is in its 5th loan cycle with 15 members. The group is well known in its neighborhood for being united, responsible among themselves, and to have solidarity. They carry out community tasks and activities for the committee and have savings of 5,253,868 in local currency.

Each of the members will receive a portion of the loan and will use it in their own economic activity. For example, Mrs. Blanca is dedicated to selling meals. She rents a small space in the city market and travels there daily with all the necessary ingredients to make meals. She then sells her meals to the people who work there as well as to those who visit the market. She enjoys good sales and earnings with much effort, Blanca comments.
