Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

The Mujeres Luchadoras group consists of 19 very hard-working women who came together to help their businesses. The key to their success is their enterprising spirit. The members resiD. in the Barrio Inmaculada in the city of Caaguazú, and with their sixth loan they want to keep progressing. Catalina R. is one of the members, and she makes a living raising chickens to sell at the market. Her method is unique since she purchases the chicks and then raises them in a coop set up in her home. Once the chickens reach their desired market weight she sells them to various businesses. She is requesting the loan to purchase feed for her chickens.
