Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

This committee, called Mujeres Luchadoras, is from the city of Caaguazú. It is made up of 18 women who are currently in their sixth loan cycle of Fundación Paraguaya's entrepreneurial women's program. They got together with the goal of seeking a better future for their families.

One of the members is Silvina. She has a small grocery store that she has been running for a while now. It is the main means by which she supports her family and covers her daily household expenses. She says she has good customers who generate a very good income for her. For that reason, she wants to keep investing in her business, which is why she is asking for this loan to buy drinks, food products, and other things to stock her store. This will allow her to meet her customers' demands.
