Ko'e Pyahu Kuñakuerape Group's story

The women listed are from the San Blas neighborhood of the city of Caacupe. Most of the women work as merchants selling all types of products such as clothing, dry goods, jewelry, or food. Some operate small convenience stores. They all put a lot of effort into their work so that they and their families can get ahead in a dignified fashion.

They are all thankful for the valuable opportunity offered to them by la Fundación Paraguaya and hope that each day they are able to acquire experience in the program and fulfill their obligations as members.

Among the members is Señora Maria A. who is engaged in the sale of fruits and vegetables. She offers her products on an itinerant basis going to the houses and businesses of her customers. Her work is very difficult.

She gets up very early in the morning in order to go to the market and supply herself with her products. Currently she wants to open a sales stand in front of her house. The loan is for the purchase of fruits and vegetables to sell.
