Mujeres Unidas Group's story

A group of women who are familiar with the program offered by Fundación Paraguaya and work together to achieve their goal meet in Fracción Santo Domingo neighborhood, in the town of Yaguarón, 3km from the city of Paraguarí.

The committee is called 'Mujeres Unidas' (United Women) because it is made up of hard-working women who have always worked together to carry out all their activities, remaining united at all times. They work for their families and the community in which they live. They are requesting this loan to invest in buying all types of clothes, especially for the children, young people and adults who need them.

For example, Cinthia D. sells clothes in her town. Through her work, she supports her family and her children in an honorable manner and cooperates with the other members of the committee. She has made a lot of progress with her group and her family. She would like to be able to increase her income, acquiring a larger quantity of clothes that she can sell at more affordable prices, thereby making more profits.

In this group: Cinthia, Margarita, Eulogia, Gladys, Virginia, Eduarda, Mariel, Petrona, Juana, Teresa, Lucia, Gualberta, Mirna, Celia*, Julia*, Rossana*
