Comite Cerrito Group's story

The Cerrito Women’s Committee was formed on March 24th, 2008, thanks to the current general director, Antoliana Fernández, who sells handicrafts. She contacted the advisor, who had a group in the same area. She inquired about the Committee of Enterprising Women’s Program. Once she was informed about the Program, she was able to get 15 women together. They are now comfortably working together as a supportive team during the sixth cycle of the program. It is an excellent group thanks to the supportive work they do, and they currently continue working in the program. The loan is for their different businesses like selling food, selling sewing supplies, buying merchandise, selling bookstore items, selling drinks, selling chickens, selling fruits and vegetables, selling sports lottery tickets, selling brooms, and selling clothes, etc. All of them run their businesses to raise funds. They help each other reach the common objectives that they all have within the group and with the Paraguaya Foundation. They actively participate in weekly meetings and have formed an impeccable collective effort. 1 Antoliana Fernández Sells handicrafts 2 Cantalicia Q.
