Emprendedoras Yvyra Pyta Group's story

The Yvyra Pyta committee consists of 12 members and is located in the city of Curuguaty. The committee is in it's second loan cycle. The members are learning the importance of group teamwork with responsibility, honesty and communication. They have demonstrated awareness of the commitment they have made to the committee and also to the Fundación Paraguaya, which has provided them with an opportunity to improve the quality of life through work, encouraging group integration, and also helping each member with the sole purpose of economic growth for themselves and their community.

One of the members is Mrs. Zulma, who breeds and sells animals. Through her hard work she has been able to sustain and raise her family. She says that her work is very hard as she needs to make sure that the animals are always safe and well looked after, and also take care of diseases. She has requested this loan to purchase more animals, as well as food for them. She is grateful to the Foundation for the opportunity they have provided, as obtaining this loan will help her very much.
