Mujeres Al Poder Group's story

This committee was formed by Maria and Liz who approached Fundación Paraguaya's office to find out more about the Committee of Entrepreneurial Women program. They invited their neighborhood friends and decided to start working as a group in order to get ahead and improve their lifestyle. These are 21 hard-working and humble women who must earn a living every day. Liria has been selling footwear for some time. She has managed to gain a large number of customers who always buy their products from her. Some day, Liria would like to be able to open a store where she will sell her shoes. Liria is requesting this loan to buy more types of shoes since, in this way, she will be able to attract more customers. She is grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for the opportunity they are giving her.

In this group: Mariana*, Liz*, Rosalba*, Gloria, Alicia, Maria, Ubaldina, Graciela, Maria, Rosa, Adolfina, Griselda, Gilda, Fermina, Maria, Rafaela, Liria, Digna, Maria, Maria, Esmilda
