Mujeres Generosas Group's story

For the formation of this committee, it was María Gladys Núñez, from Monday, Minga Guazú, who contacted her neighbors and friends to create a committee in her area.

The committee is called "Mujeres Generosas" ["Generous Women"], and they are in their fourth loan cycle, with 18 members. It is a group that is noteworthy in their neighborhood for being very united and responsible, with a strong sense of solidarity. The members possess a great entrepreneurial spirit; they are up-tp-date with their payments; they carry out activities to raise funds; and they intend to finish this phase with outstanding fulfillment of their responsibilities to the institution. Like Maria, all of them are requesting the loan to invest in their enterprises.

Maria's work is selling clothing. She enjoys this activity very much, since the merchandise she brings from the border is very cheap, and thus she obtains a good profit from it. She sells her merchandise from her home, and she does it both for cash and credit, depending on the customers.

She is requesting the loan to buy t-shirts, blouses, dresses, shorts, and other items.

In this group: María, Fidelina, Claudia, Blanca, Jovita, Felicita, Bernardina, Ofelia, Celia, Sonia, María, Lucía, Asteria, Mirian, Alicia, Graciela, Myrian, Adolfina
