Mujeres En Progreso Group's story

This group is located in the city of Asuncion and is part of the “Comite de Mujeres Emprendedoras” (Committee for Enterprising Women). It’s in its third cycle.

Nimia T., age 35 has two children who stay at her older sister’s house while she goes out to sell Tereré (flavor infused cold water; a typical beverage in Paraguay) in the Uruguay Plaza, located in the city center. She does this in the mornings, and in the evenings sells “Tele Bingo” (a game played on national television). She takes her youngest son with her.

She’s been through many hardships and has a difficult time. After finishing her work, she must care for the household. She has a small house build from miscellaneous materials, but she works hard because this is how she supports her family.

She is asking for this loan in order to buy supplies to prepare “Tele Bingo” cards
