A loan of $5,125 helps a member to refinance her debt and to buy assorted products to stock her business.


Mujeres Valientes Group's story

The group called "Mujeres Valientes" is made up of friends and neighbors in Ciudad del Este who are searching for the way to be able to improve their quality of life, and that of their loved ones. They are in their 6th cycle of the Committee of Women Program.

Celina is one of the members. She works selling baked goods, rice, and dairy products in her general store. She says that, with her work, she helps to support her home and her family. She defines herself as a hard-working person who, in spite of daily difficulties, never gives up and fights for her loved ones.

She says facing the crisis that is going through the world with the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic has impeded her from working normally and generating the means to be able to help her family. This has also brought consequences to her business. But, in spite of this, she is searching for the way to be able to rise again and, in this way, help her family.

Celina is requesting the loan to be able to refinance her debt and at the same time be able to invest more capital in her business, to stock it with more products to sell.
