Mujeres Trabajadoras Group's story

The group "Mujeres Trabajadoras" (Hardworking Women) has been together for one year, and works with the Fundación Paraguaya. Most of its members are already engaged in productive activities, and they are all very satisfied with what they do. One of the women in the group is Marta F., who sells clothes. She comes from a very humble family and works hard to support her own family. Currently she needs to build another room on her house for her children, and that is why she is requesting a loan from the Foundation. Right now the income from her clothing sales isn't enough to cover the extra costs of improving the house. She is thankful for the help she receives from Kiva through Fundación Paraguaya.

All the women of the group are women of scarce resources, but they dream of a better future for there children. For this reason, they work twice as hard to provide them with what they need to grow and develop.

In this group: Marta, Liduvina, Liz, Lidia, Claudia, Gualberta, Rosaliz, Alicia, Eulalia, Cristana, Agustina, Carmen, Angela, Gloria, Leonida, Stella, Maria, Claudelina, Elena*, Ana*, Liz *, Francisca*
