Mujeres Activas Group's story

The committee Mujeres Activas is an excellent committee formed on March 22, 2010, and is made up of 15 women from the city of Capiatá. This group was formed thanks to Fermina who went up to the assessor and formed the group. Now she finds herself working very contently in the second cycle of the Program of the Committee of Enterprising Women.

The members of this group use their loans for different activities like: buying fruits and vegetables, buying ingredients for the preperation of food, buying for a notions store, buying merchandise for a market ( sugar, rice, maté, breads, dairy, meats, etc.), and buying clothes for resale. It is a very active group, all of the members show comradeship and solidarity, they attend the weekly meetings and do activities to collect funds for the common good of the group.

In the group is Fermina who works selling clothes. She began this job after forming the committee of women. She offers her merchandise from her house and also leaves to offer in houses of her friends. It has gone well up to now as it creates an income, which she invests in her house for various things, and now she wants to buy more items of clothing to have more varieties like T-shirts, dresses, sweaters, pants, and jeans. This is why she needs the loan.

In this group: Fermina, Felicita, Celedonia, Liliana, Maria, Maria, Gilda, Lidia, Felicia, Mirta, Estelvina, Graciela, Fidelina, Irma, Blasida
