Madres Trabajadoras Group's story

The Madres Trabajadoras (Working Mothers) Group has been around for almost three years, working in conjunction with Fundación Paraguaya. Most of its members are already involved in productive activities. During this loan cycle, 4 new members have joined, and they have been learning the ropes about business since they, too, want to develop some sort of business to help out their families. The members sell products like fruits and vegetables, and homemade food like meat, chicken, or ham and cheese empanadas.

They hope for a better future for their children, which is why they double their efforts to provide them with the tools they need for their development and upbringing.

Ms. Blanca P. is one of the group members who sells breakfast and lunch. With her family's help, she prepares meals to sell to other families every day. The menu changes daily, and some dishes include: rice or noodle stew, steak, tortillas, empanadas, breaded cutlets of meat, soups, and other meals.

She is requesting this loan in order to purchase the ingredients she needs to prepare her dishes.

In this group: Blanca, Catalina, Denisse, Nancy, Hilaria, María, Alejandrina, Sandi, Noelia, Cristina, Marian, Liz, Inocencia, Silvia, Mirna, Ana, Dionicia
