Nuevo Amanecer Group's story

This committee is very well organized; they are united, hard working and mutually supportive. They are in the fourth cycle renewal. They meet weekly to organize the teamwork trading off equally among them.

These women are from the city of Mbocyaty-Villarica. Most are micro entrepreneurs. They are manufacturers and buyers/sellers of Ao Poi garments (traditional Paraguayan embroidery). They stated that their dream of growth and group solidarity would be to open a micro business together with help from Fundación Paraguaya and its regular loans granted at each stage. They learn to save and in the near future will have their own committee micro business to work alongside what they are currently involved in.

Emilce has been making and selling Ao Poi garments for a long time. She was a teacher for over 25 years and is now retired but because her pension isn’t sufficient to be able to support her family she‘s working her micro business.

She hopes to have support from Kiva lenders to buy more fabric and necessary supplies to make her items.

In this group: Emilce, Catalina, Aida, Maria, Nilda, Cristina, Norma, Mirtha, Maria, Alba, Blanca, Maria, Mirta, Florinda, Nelly, Carmen, Alba, Olga
