Valiant Women Of Pirayu Group's story

The women of this group are members of "Compania Tujukua" in the cit of Caacupe, located at a distance of 25 km from the offices of Fundacion Paraguaya (Kiva Field Partner) in the same city.

The leader of the group is Maria Antonia D.. She is an artisan in Nanduti where she lives with her partner, employed as a security guard, and their three children, all of whom are in school. Antonia is a very humble person and she lives in a small and precarious home but she is very hard working and responsible. She works every day tirelessly to generate more income for her home and to help with the daily expenses.

She will invest all of her loan in the purchase of fabrics and threads to weave Nanduti articles. Thanks to her work and her dedication that she puts into her work she always has many orders and her clients are always very satisfied.

She and her colleagues in the group are very thankful to Fundacion Paraguaya and to Kiva for the important support they are providing them through this loan.

In this group: Maria Antonia, Daniela, Blanca, Victorina, Sonia, Alva, Norma, Maria, Felicita, Elida, Nilda, Sara, Migdonia, Lilian, Anatolia*
