A loan of $3,100 helped a member to buy raw materials for making hand crafted items.

Mujeres Valientes De Pirayu Group's story

The women of the present committee are from the Tujukua Company. They are very content with the program from the Committee of Entrepreneurial Women, as it provides them with access to capital to help increase their incomes and slowly grow their businesses. The women are today in their 7th loan cycle, have 19 members, and have been in existence for 1 year.

This group is very grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for the support it has provided for them to grow economically. One of the members, Maria, dedicates herself to handicraft works such embroidery for bedspreads, tablecloths, and other items. She buys the materials and creates these with her very own hands, selling her items to the various businesses in the city. Her work is admired and sells quickly.

Several of the members dedicate themselves to this type of activity and, via this means, help their families with the household expenses and, in particular, with providing food for each day. Maria is requesting a loan to buy the raw materials she needs to create her handcrafted works.

In this group: Maria , Daniela, Blanca, Victorina, Sonia, Elva, Maria, Norma, Maria, Elida, Nilda, Sara, Yolanda, Liliana, Migdonia, Nelly, Emilia, Maria , Felicita*
