Santa Librada Group's story

Santa Librada is the name of the Committee formed on February 18 of 2009 in the Barrio Santa Librada of the city of Yaguarón. This was thanks to Rosa S., who sells food. She attended a Program Training talk of the Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras and she was very impressed with how the committee works. This was the reason that she formed her own group in her community, getting 17 women together. They are very happy with the Fundación Paraguaya and with Kiva.

All of the members of the committee attend the weekly meetings and they work together to acheive the goals they have in common. This is a very united group and its members are fighters who work hard to get their families ahead. This is the case of Ingrid, who like a lot of mothers sells clothing. She does this as a street vendor, visiting many places where there are a lot of people and offering her merchandise there. Her husband and children help with the work to sell the merchandise and get ahead.
