Mujeres Maravilla Group's story

Adelaida, Director of Finances of this committee, lives at Kilometer 7 in the Mburucuja barrio of Ciudad del Este. She contacted her neighbors and friends to form the committee in the zone.

The committee is known at “Mujeres Maravilla” (Marvelous Women), and the Director general is Ignacia. The group is composed of 17 women who are very active and have much solidarity. They are all from the same zone.

Ignacia sells clothes on the street. The business leaves her a good margin of earnings, but she wants to increase her business. She wishes to offer her family a higher quality of life. Ignacia is a fighting and persevering woman. For that reason, she is completely dedicated to the committee, to her business, and to her family.

Hoping to count on the economic help of Kiva and the Fundacion Paraguaya, she requests a loan to buy coats, caps, gloves, polo shirts, pants, etc. Winter is approaching (in the Southern Hemisphere) and she wants to be prepared for the demands of her customers.

In this group: Ignacia, Adelaida, María, Graciela, Dora, Cinthia, Teresa, Reina, Ermelinda, María, Juana, Georgina, Tomasa, Shirley, María, Elva, Cecilia*
