Mujeres Trabajadoras Group's story

The “Comité Mujeres Trabajadoras” began because one of the members of the group’s sister is a member of a different committee within the city of Luque and decided to invite her friends and neighbors to create a new group in the neighborhood. It’s currently in the eleventh cycle of the “Comité Mujeres Trabajadoras” of the “Fundación Paraguaya.” It’s made up of 19 ladies who work responsibly in an air of mutual cooperation.

Jorgelina is married to Raúl. Together they have two daughters, one is six years old and in the first grade, and the other is one year old. Jorgelina sells clothing. She used to work as a housekeeper and says that clothing sales has gone well for her and that she has steady customers. She likes being able to help her husband with the household expenses because if they pool their efforts they can better pay their expenses.

She is asking for this loan in order to buy winter clothing, which will be very helpful because she has good customer demand. She appreciates the Foundation for the opportunity that it gives her.
