Cerrito Group's story

The “Cerrito” (Little Hill) women’s committee was formed on 24 March 2008 thanks to Antoliana who sells crafts and contacted the advisor who had a group in the same zone. She learned about the Enterprising Women’s Committee Program and managed to get 17 women together who are working comfortably in their 10th cycle now together and unified within the program. It is an excellent group; thanks to the supportive work they do they continue working with the program to date.

Since she was a little girl, Sra. Antolina has worked making artisinal crafts. Thanks to the training her mother gave her, she succeeded in learning this trade and today her income supports not only her but her entire family. She is asking for the loan to buy the supplies she need for their crafts, that is, everything indispensible for her work such as fabric, needles, and paints.

They are sure that with help from Fundación Paraguaya they will be able to continue with their tasks, add customers and increase income to have a better future.
