Las Trabajadoras Group's story

This group of excellent hard working women is called “Las Trabajadoras” (Working Women), and was formed on October 27, 2009. They are currently in their 4th program cycle and work at different things, but also work together to build up funds. They mutually support one another to reach their group objectives and those they have within “Fundación Paraguaya.”

Veronica, one of the members, raises, fattens up, and sells chickens. She has a good chicken coop, well suited for raising corral birds and she has a respectable number of chickens, which are well fed. They generate a good income for her because they are well sought after by her customers.

She wants to expand her chicken coop and subsequently wants to increase the number of chickens she raises. To do this, she needs to invest in a large number of chicks, balanced feed, and equipment to supply the birds with feed and water.

This expansion will generate a greater income, given that she is well known in the zone, and the consumption of chicken has increased, due to more accessible prices.

In this group: Verónica, Mirian, Noemí, Leticia, Lorgia, Porfiria, Eulogia, Nélida, Eulalia, Luz, Yoday, Floriana, María, María, María
