Mujeres Maravilla Group's story

This committee was formed by Mrs. Adelaida G., who lives on the 7th kilometer of the Murucuyá neighborhood in Ciudad del Este. She contacted her friends and neighbors to launch a group in their area. The group is called “Mujeres Maravilla” (“Wonder Women”) and is made up of 19 very active women from the same area who show great solidarity with one another. They have different business activities, and some group members were able to start new businesses in order to generate income and thus support their families. For example, Mrs. Ignacia V. did not have a business, but after joining this committee she became enthusiastic and started working as a street vendor selling clothing. She travels around, visiting commercial establishments in remote areas of the city. She earns good money and feels very fulfilled. She is happy to be able to help her family improve their quality of life. She used this loan to buy clothing like jerseys, shirts, pants, and other items.

In this group: Ignacia , Adelaida, Maria, Graciela , Dora , Elsa, Teresa, Reina , Hilda , Hermelinda, María, María, Georgina, Tomasa, Mariana, María, Elva *, Cecilia*, Francisca*
