A loan of $1,575 helped a member to buy pigs.

Ko'eju Group's story

A group of women from the city of Paraguarí joined together to initiate productive activities. They coordinated a meeting to learn about the Mujeres Emprendedoras program.

The committee is called Ko’eju and is characterized by the unity, dynamism and mutual respect of those who through this means have strengthened the bond between them. They are currently in their 15th cycle with a grade of ‘excellent.’ It is composed of 12 members.

Nora is one of the members. She wants the loan to buy pigs because she raises pigs. She removes the fat from them to make other foods or sells them to firms or cooperatives that manufacture cured meats.

In this group: Eulalia, Teresa, Nora, Felia, Gladys, Margarita, Julia, Miryan, Idalina, Bernardita, Raquel, Cynthia
