A loan of $1,175 helped a member to buy meat, cheese and eggs.

San Cayetano/ Belén Group's story

The San Cayetano Women's Committee was founded on October 24th 2010. They are in their first loan cycle and working together in solidarity within the program.

As well as each woman having her own individual work, the group carry out activities together in order to make funds so that they have some capital within the group. They also help each other to achieve their goals. Their main goal is to work in order to financially support their families.

The story of Feliciana M. is a very moving one. Feliciana buys and sells meat, cheese and eggs, etc. She tells us that with her loan she has been able to improve her business quite a lot, as well as her standard of living and her income.

Feliciana comments that the work which Fundación Paraguaya does is very important because she never found this kind of opportunity elsewhere, since she is very poor.

In this group: Marciana, Vilma, Elena, Feliciana, Ceferina, Daniela, Antonia, Toribia*, Felicita*, Angela
