A loan of $3,925 helped a member to buy fabrics, linen, scissors and other dressmaking supplies.


Mujeres Trabajadoras Group's story

This committee was founded thanks to Olga R.. Olga is a very kind and active woman who lives in her own small home. She is single but has always known how to get ahead in spite of everything.

Olga is a dressmaker and she requested this loan so that she could expand her business since it would help her a lot. She will buy fabrics, linen, scissors and other work materials that she needs.

This committee is a long-standing group which, in spite of the small problems that they have had, have always known how to get ahead. When Olga started the group, she was just another member and didn't stand out at all. However, she was elected president of the group and has led the group very well along the road of perseverance and prosperity. She found out about Kiva through other groups and was interested. She spoke with Fundación Paraguaya and went house to house in her neighborhood to form a group.

This is a very united group. Together they decided to carry out activities each month in order to add to their petty cash. Each member owns her own small business.

The women live in Villa Bonita neighborhood, in the city of Villa Elisa. Their goals are to always work in order to get ahead with their group, their small businesses and also their families.

In this group: Gladys, Olga Deolinda, Carolina, Francisca, Sandra, Delia, Blanca, Liz Antonia, Marcelina, Victoria, Graciela, Beatriz, Alice, Nancy, María Isabel, Elida, Sandra Noemi *
