Mujeres Talentosas Group's story

This Committee came together thanks to Eladia who had stopped by the Fundación Paraguaya office to get detailed information about the program of the Enterprising Women’s Committee. She then invited her friends and acquaintances in the neighborhood who decided to add themselves to the group effort to get ahead thus improving their way of life.

They are 16 humble, hard working women who must earn their daily sustenance. They work independently at their tasks. Some sell clothes, others sell food or have grocery stores, general stores or community farms; they sell their own products. They sell cleaning supplies, notions, charcoal, manioc, etc.

Teresa, hoping to get ahead with her family, is asking for this loan that she hopes will help her have her own costume jewelry business. She will make the items herself. She will buy acrylics, seed pearls, pincers, chains, string, etc.

In this group: Rosa, Catalina, Marizza, Teresa, Victoriana, Hilda, Catalina, Ma. Liza, Limpia, Eladia, Juana, Gloria, Cruz, Marta, Celia, Feliciana
