Ñemity Group's story

The women of this committee are from the Yhakarosa zone of Caacupe city. They are active women who are motivated to work hard and improve their lives.

The women are thankful for the Paraguaya Foundation because thanks to previous loans and regular trainings they have received they have learned to save money, grow their businesses, and provide for their families.

Mrs. Juana is the treasurer of the committee. She is an energetic woman and she always looks for ways to encourage her fellow members to work hard. She owns a farm where she raises a variety of animals and grows vegetables. She lives with her son who helps her with the farm. She applied for a loan to purchase agricultural supplies like fertilizer, seeds, and pesticides because there has been an increased demand for vegetables and she hopes to provide enough produce for her clients. The committee has been working with the foundation for between three and four years.
