Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

The women in this committee are from A. in the town of Caacupé.

They are very hard-working, determined women. Many of them are heads of families. They are very grateful for the financial support and trust which Fundación Paraguaya is providing them with. Thanks to the loans and the constant training which they receive, they are managing to get ahead in life and are able to support their families and grow their businesses.

The committee members have just finished their 10th loan cycle. They now have a line of credit of more than one million guaranís and more and more women keep joining their committee with a desire to get ahead in life. They listen to the program and see how the existing members are increasing their incomes and thereby improving their quality of life.

One of the members is Rosa who sells cosmetics. She sells her products to order and offers them through catalogs which show the products she sells. In the future, she would like to open a store where she can offer clothes and footwear as well as cosmetics. She is requesting her loan so that she can buy cosmetics as she has a lot of orders to fill, especially for perfume.
