Mujeres Activas De Candia Loma Group's story

The women of this existing committee are from the Candia Loma Assembly in the city of Caacupé, which is 6km from the Caacupé regional office. With the financial support they receive from Fundación Paraguaya, the members feel secure working in their own businesses because they are able to plan ahead and provide for their families.

Sra. Petrona manages a store where she sells all types of items needed for the home. She is a hardworking woman who gets ahead on behalf of her family in the best way possible. Her husband sells handicrafts, but since he does not earn a steady income, she tries to help in any way she can. Petrona has a few personal expenses related to her children and she also wants to restock her store with merchandise that is low in supply. Therefore, she is requesting a loan to buy baked goods, canned goods, sausages, noodles, rice, and flour.

As of now, all of the members are participating in their eighth loan cycle in the Committee of Women Entrepreneurs Program with Fundación Paraguaya, which establishes daily improvement projects and promotes the development of individuals with limited resources.
