Las Exitosas Group's story

This committee is located in the city of Asuncion and is in its third cycle.

Dilma S. is 30 years old and has three children, all school aged. In the mornings, when they come home from school they help their mother husk the corn and carry it in a rubber bag to sell in the San Antonio zone (near Asuncion).

She sells corn in the evenings (when her children are in school) and returns home at night. She makes many sacrifices because she tries to support her family, care for her household, and educate her children.

She is a very pretty and brave lady because she struggles daily to get ahead with her children. She is a single mother who lives in a very poor part of the zone.
