Mujeres Valientes Group's story

This group is comprised of women who are natives of Trinidad. They have been beneficiaries of group credit since May of 2007. They are entering their 12th loan cycle in great shape.

Trinidad is an area that relies more on tourism than commerce, so some of the members carry out their businesses in adjacent cities, while others develop their businesses in the neighborhoods where they live.

The director general, Nancy R., has 3 children and works jointly with Ramona Christaldo, who occupies the position of director of finance.

Ramona is married to Ricardo Chavez, who is a bricklayer.

Ramona states that on one occasion she was very happy because she was finishing paying for a piece of land for her own home with the help of a loan that she received from the Fundación Paraguaya.

The two women work selling clothing, and they request this loan to buy T-shirts, shirts, dresses, shorts and other clothing items.

Most of the members of this group have been members since the beginning, and so they know each other very well. They state that they are happy to be part of this group of women, and to be able to save so that they can have a security fund that they can tap into in the event that they have unforeseen expenses.

In this group: Nancy , Ramona, Maribel, Maria, Prisila, Teodosia, Francisca, Norma , Celia, Oliva, Celia, Ramona, Felida, Gregoria, Maria , Lucia, Juana*, Maria*, Liz*
