A loan of $1,625 helped a member to buy fall-winter clothing.

Mujeres Vencedoras Group's story

The committee was formed thanks to the initiative of Mrs. Teresa Dávalos, a member of the Virgen de Fátima committee, located in Kilometer 16 Acaray de Minga Guazú, Ciudad del Este. She has a lot of acquaintances in the Kilometer 22 zone of this city that she gathered together to form a committee in this location.

It’s called “Mujeres Vencedoras” (Triumphant Women) and they are in their first cycle with 12 members. The group consists of very united, mutually supportive and responsible people. They have a strong enterprising spirit and are committed to meet the responsibilities they’ve taken on with the Fundación. They want to carry out fund raising activities to help each other out.

Mrs. María del Pilar sells clothing. Because Ciudad del Este is a commercial city of note, she has many customers but also much competition. Because of this she wants to buy fall-winter clothes in order to offer the best items to her consumers.

She is a woman with a desire to de better and provide a better quality of life for her family, especially her children, showing them that everything can be attained with effort.

In this group: María, Fanny, Ramona, Rosalba, Regina, Ada, Edit, Adela, Elina, Juana, Sirley, Glady*
