Mujeres Activas Group's story

Mujeres Activas (Active Women) is a group of good women formed in the city of Itá. It was formed thanks to the efforts of Sra. Reinalda, the current president. She contacted the loan counselor during a weekly meeting of Fundacion Paraguaya that the organization was having in the area. Once she approached the foundation’s counseling office, Sra. Reinalda succeeded in bringing together 17 women whom she had met. They work together comfortably with unity and solidarity and are already in the 5th loan cycle working within the program.

Sra. Reinalda is engaged in the sale of meals of all types. She says that she has many customers since, according to them, she cooks very well. Thanks to her business she is able to help with household expenses and give her family the minimum conditions for a dignified and proper life.

Since things are going well she wants to continue investing in her business. That’s why she is applying for a loan in order to purchase meat, noodles, condiments, vegetables, and other foods which are essential ingredients of her meals.

In this group: Reinalda, Graciela, Lina, Elisa, Maria, Miguela, Graciela, Ramona, Vilma, Marta, Zunilda, Celedonia, Miriam, Juliana, Ceveriana, Antonia, Mariza
