A loan of $8,000 helps a member to refinance her debt and to purchase fabric, thread, needles, and other products.


Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

The group called Mujeres Luchadoras was formed with the union of friends and neighbors in the city of Caaguazú, who sought the way to be able to improve their quality of life and that of their loved ones. They are in their first loan cycle in the women's committee program.

Catalina is one of the members of this group. She works sewing clothing that she makes herself. She is an enterprising person who, with effort and daily struggle, gets her loved ones ahead and seeks the way to be able to continue doing it. She states that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, her business was affected as well as her income, but she seeks the way to be able to improve herself and get ahead.

She asks for this loan to be able to refinance her debt and to purchase fabric, thread, needles, and other products.
