Mujeres En Accion Group's story

The Mujeres En Accion (Women In Action) group consists of an excellent group of women from the city of Capiatá, Paraguay. This is thanks to the work of current general director Esmeralda, who contacted people associated with the women's entrepreneur program and was informed about the organization. After this, she organized her friends and neighbors to form the group. She was able to unite 19 women who work with a lot of passion and are already in their fifth loan cycle jointly and with solidarity. They think of themselves as hard-working women willing to fight for what they want. One of the members is Silvia, who makes a living making and selling food such as sandwiches, empanadas, tortillas and other items. She has done this for a very long time, so she has a solid customer base. Her dream is to one day be able to have her own establishment where she can offer her meals. She is requesting the loan to purchase the ingredients she needs to make the food she sells. She thinks that the loan will be a big help so she can continue with her business.
