Mujeres En Accion Group's story

The committee named “Mujeres en Acción” is in its first loan cycle. The group was formed in the neighborhood of Centro, which is in the city of Corpus Christi. This area is still in a growth period. The members of the group want to get ahead. All of them are hardworking and seek to provide for the welfare of their families.

Sra. Higinia is one of the members. She is a determined person who is dedicated to her family. Despite having problems with her vision, Higinia has never given up. She is an extremely determined woman who wants to get ahead. She is grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for the opportunity she has received so that she can continue working and improving.

Higinia is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of animals to raise such as pigs, chickens, and other livestock. This will help her generate more household income.
