Virgen De La Misericordia Group's story

This group of extraordinary women is called “Virgen de Misericordia” (Lady of Mercy) and is located in the city of Ita, thanks to the current manager, Silvia D.. She contacted the advisor at a weekly meeting in the same zone, to find out about the work of the Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras (Committee of Enterprising Women).

Once she got advice, she was able to bring 16 women together and they are all now comfortably working on their fourth cycle.

All of them do different things to gather funds to mutually help one another to reach their common goals within the group and with Fundación Paraguaya. Silvia sells meat and has been doing so for several years. She supports her family this way, but since she has many customers, the demand is greater than supply, so she is asking for this loan to be able to buy more meat to satisfy her customer demand.

In this group: Silvia, Marina, Mirna, Raquel, Mireya, Bonifacia, Mirian, Mary, Celedonia, Cinthia, Miguela, Diana, María, Zaida, Mirna*
