Santa Librada Group's story

This committee formed in the city of Caaguazú; it has 24 women members who joined together to form a communal bank. They are very responsible, hardworking women who have an enterprising, mutually supportive spirit. They took on the commitment not to fail and to stand out working as a team with support from Fundación Paraguaya. They are currently in their second cycle within the enterprising women program.

One of the members is Lariza who is a seamstress. Through this work she’s been able to support her family and obtain the necessary resources to cover daily expenses. She comments that she does very well in the business so would like to continue to grow. She requests the loan to buy fabric, closures, buttons, elastic and other supplies to stock her workshop.
