Kuña Arandu Group's story

The “Kuña Arandu” Women’s Committee was formed in 2009 thanks to one of the members who came by the Fundación Paraguaya office to find out about the program and contacted an advisor to form a new group. She gathered together 16 women at the beginning but currently there are 21 members who are working very comfortably and very hard and very dedicated in a cooperative, mutually supportive way in their seventh cycle within the program.

Carolina is a dressmaker. Thanks to this occupation she’s been able to obtain income necessary to support her household. She comments that she has a lot of work since many people come to her and place many orders. One of her dreams is to enlarge her workshop and to have more sewing machines to meet customers demand.

She’s asking for the loan to buy fabric, needles, thread and others which are the essential materials needed for her work. She thanks Fundación Paraguaya for the opportunity it gives her.

In this group: Gregoria Margarita, Rumilda, Rosa, Silvia, Blanca, Noelia, Benicia, Delia, Laura, Carolina, Mariana, Mirna, Gilda, Silvia, Georgia, Antonia, Venancia, Maria, Sonia, Felicita, Enis
