Perpetuo Socorro Group's story

In the city of Carapeguá, in the Compañía Cerrito, 8 km from the office of Carapeguá, some low-income women found out about the Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras progam. They decided to get together to find out more about the program.

These women are very active and hardworking and most of them make handicrafts, a common actrivity among the people of that area. They are looking for a little support in order to increase their families' income and improve their quality of life through credit. They need this credit program to invest in their respective jobs and thus be able to have sustainable growth that will make them grow as a group and individually.

Like Viviana O., who embroiders fabric and makes woven clothes, all by hand. Her work is very, very delicate and much admired by the customers who acquire and happily pay for her handicrafts.

In this group: Viviana , Sebastiana, Elva , Maria Silvana, Rosa, Margarita , Leonarda, Rosa, Olegaria, Celsa, Cinthia, Elizabeth, Cornelia, Liliana, Avelina, Felicia, Pricila*, Eugenia*
