Mujeres Virtuosas Group's story

The name of this group is "Mujeres Virtuosas", meaning "Virtuous Women". It is an excellent group of women from the city of Villa Elisa. Thanks to Damiana who contacted an assessor at a weekly meeting in the region to inform herself on the kind of work carried out by Comite de Mujeres Emprendedoras. Once she was informed on the program she was able to bring together a group of 15 women, and now they are on their first loan cycle. They all have business activities to earn an income. They help each other to meet their common group objectives and with Fundacion Paraguaya (Kiva Field Partner).

Damiana is a seamstress. She makes articles of clothing for men and women and she is very well known in the region for the excellent quality of clothing she makes.

She has had this business since she was an adolescent. It was a trade that she quickly learned from her mother and today it has converted into the primary source of income for her family.

She requests a loan to purchase fabrics of different qualities and colors in order to be able to produce more and to have a larger selection for her clients.

In this group: Damiana, Benita, Susana, Josefa, Noelia, Isabel, Lorena, Julia, Veronica, Estela, Arsenia, Arminda, Rosa, Carmen, Yamile*
