Mujeres Luchadoras - Hernandarias Group's story

The committee was formed at the suggestion of Estela who lives in the Puerta de Sol Hernandarias zone of Ciudad del Este. She contacted her neighbors and friends to put together a group in the zone.

The committee was named Mujeres Luchadoras (Fighting Women) - Hernandarias. This is the 1st loan cycle and there are 10 members. It is a group that stands out in the barrio for its solidarity and responsibility. The members possess a great enterprising spirit, working together to realize activities to collect funds that the committee can safeguard in case of necessity, and attempting to close out this stage with very good cooperation with this institution. Upon acquiring the loan, many doors will be opened for progress in the women's lives.

For example, Paola works as a domestic employee and wants to be able to offer her family a better life, but for this she needs a loan to cover the most urgent necessities of her family group and, then, with the help of all, to initiate a proper grocery business.

In this group: Paola, Justina, Nancy, Estela Maris, Patricia, Blanca, Leonarda, Rosalia, Pablina, Perla
