Las Recicladoras Group's story

In the city of Asunción, 15 women have joined together with the wish to get ahead through their work as a group to be able to get ahead. Most of these women are mothers and heads of household who day by day sacrifice for their families. This committee is in its third cycle and the sense of responsibility and the wish to make progress each one of them has stand out.

One of the members is Fernanda who recycles all sorts of products like bottles, cardboard, paper and other types of items. She comments that the work is very demanding because it’s difficult for her to have to go out daily in search of plastic. She tells us that thanks to her sacrifice she’s managed to raise her family and see that they lack nothing.

She requests the loan to buy recyclables like bottles, aluminum and others that she then resells producing a bit of profit. She thanks the Fundación for the great opportunity it gives her.

In this group: Fernanda, Marlene, Carmen, Noelia, Maria, Maria, Onorina*, Lidia, Carmen, Estanislaa, Pablina, Cristina, Lucia, Delia, Belen*
