San Francisco Group's story

This committee was created by two of its members who approached Fundación Paraguaya's Office to find out more about the 'Comité D. Mujeres Emprendedoras' (Committee of Entrepreneurial Women) Program. They invited their friends and acquaintances from their neighborhood to work together as a group in order to get ahead and improve their lifestyles. The committee has 18 members. They are all hard-working, modest women who must earn a living every day.

One of the members of this committee is Rogelia, whose business is selling all kinds of food. She tells us that her workday starts very early in the morning. She must get up early in order to prepare all the food that she will sell that day as she likes to make sure that she always sells fresh food to her customers. She tells us that she has a lot of customers and this makes her good income.

Rogelia is requesting this loan to buy meat, chicken, seasonings, baked goods, eggs and other supplies she needs to make the food that she sells.
