A loan of $2,300 helped a member to buy cosmetics to sell.


Mujeres Valientes Group's story

Sixteen women from the city of Encarnación meet with the intention of getting ahead by all of them working together. Working as a team is of primary importance. That is why they always put forth their maximum efforts in order to achieve their objectives. They are currently in the second cycle of the enterprising women’s program with the Fundación Paraguaya.

Mirta is one of the members of the group. She says that she has been selling cosmetics for a good amount of time. Through this work she is able to cover her expenses and those of her family. She says that due to her kindness and good service she has managed to get ahead and achieve her goals.

She wishes to continue her enterprise. That is why she is requesting the loan to buy more cosmetics. Then she will be able to meet her customers’ demand.

She is very grateful to the Fundación and to Kiva for the great opportunity. This is the only way she will be able to advance.

In this group: Juana, María, María, Mirta, Alicia, Alexandra, Perla, Edita, Hilda, Bienvenida, Clorinda, Hilda, Yodalina, Nancy, María*, Frasile*
