Santa Clara Group's story

A group of 23 women in Ciudad del Este got together in an aim to develop the women entrepreneurs' program at the Fundación Paraguaya. Their main goal is to generate more income for their families and children, since most of them are single mothers and heads of family. Apart from their economic concerns they also want to grow personally. They are now in their tenth cycle all working in an environment of cooperation and respect. Ms. Yessica sells fruit and earns a living this way in order to support her family and give them a dignified, proper lifestyle. She offers all kinds of fruit which attracts many customers, thereby generating a good income. One of her goals is to have her own fruit shop so she can grow in the commercial aspect. She is requesting a loan to buy fruit so she can meet customer demand. The loan will help her greatly with her projects. She is grateful to the Fundación for this opportunity.
