Progreso Y Desarrollo Group's story

In the city of Villa Elisa, 21 women got together with the desire to be part of Fundación Paraguaya's program for women entrepreneurs. Their objective in getting together has been to get ahead and in this way be able to help their families. They are very contented with the help and the training they are receiving. One of the members is María, who tells us she is a dressmaker. She does all types of work in fabric, such as shirts, t-shirts, pants, and others. She describes herself as a very hard-working and enterprising woman who struggles to give her family the best. One of her goals is to be able to continue growing and be able to work with big companies. She is requesting the loan to buy fabric, buttons, closures, and other necessary supplies to stock her business.
