Mujeres Unidas Group's story

Nineteen women in the Ciudad del Este have united with the purpose of working together and through this work getting ahead and helping one another. They are hard working women and fighters, and are in the eighth cycle of the program for women entrepreneurs of the Fundación Paraguayan (Paraguayan Foundation).

One of the members is María, who by selling cosmetics succeeds by having the financial means necessary in order to be able to help her family. She comments to us that she has good sales because of the variety she always has, in addition to the good price and the friendliness with which she assists her customers. She wants to be able to continue growing her business, and this is why she is asking for a loan.

She wants to buy all types of makeup, with which she could have more variety and therefore attract more clients. She thanks the foundation for the opportunity that this gives her.
