Mujeres Activas De Candia Loma Group's story

This microfinance group is from the Candia Loma rural area of the city of Caacupe, which is approximately 10 km from the regional office. This group is comprised of 16 very hardworking and united women.

The group president, Ms. Petrona G., lives with her husband and children. She owns a small in-home general store. Also, thanks to Fundación Paraguaya's microfinance program, she has been able to obtain non-prescription reading glasses so that she can resell them, thus generating more income for the household expenses.

These women are all very grateful to Fundación Paraguaya because thanks to their previous loans and to the constant training sessions, they are able to generate their own income and help provide a better quality of life for their families.

Ms. Petrona wishes to obtain this loan to purchase winter clothing to sell to her demanding customers, thus generating more money for the household.
