Amigas Luchadoras Group's story

This communal bank formed in the Bernardino Caballero neighborhood in the city of Caaguazú. There are 18 women who approached the Fundación Paraguaya because they learned that they gave small loans to women. These women are very hard-working, supportive, and responsible.

The loan will be a big help because they wish for personal progress and progress for their families. Participating in the communal bank is very satisfactory for all of them. This is not just because of the loan, but it is also because of sharing with women with the same interest in getting ahead as they struggle day to day.

Ciriaca T. D. M. has a business of retail sales in a general store. The loan will be used to purchase wholesale merchandise like canned goods, school supplies, general cold meats, vegetables, fruits, meat and dairy products, cleaning and notions products to sell at retail.

The store that she has is pretty busy because of the variety of products that she has. She wants to increase her stock of merchandise in order to increase her income. That way she will grow in the market in which she works.
