Mujeres Trabajadoras Group's story

The women in this group are from the Virgen de los Remedios de Tobatí neighborhood. These women are very satisfied with the economic support that Fundación Paraguaya has offered them. Through this funding, the women have expanded their small businesses and thereby improved the quality of life they and their children have. These women are in their 4th loan cycle and there are 11 members. All of the members of this group are very grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for the valuable support it offers them, so that they may improve their financial conditions in society.

One of the members is Ms. Eliodora, who sells food from her house. This business helps a great deal with her children's expenses, especially for education and nutrition. Her sales stand is in a strategic location. This is how she sells a large amount of food every day, especially empanadas, which are the food she sells the most of.

She is requesting this loan to purchase ingredients she uses to make the food she prepares.

In this group: Eliodora, Sofia, Estela, Elida, Gladys, Julio, Mercedes, Beatriz, Ana*, Silveria, Felipa
