Soliadrias De Tuyukua Group's story

Twenty women from the city of Caacupé have joined together. They have the desire to succeed so that they can help their families. These women are hard workers and self-sacrificing individuals who view this program with Fundación Paraguaya as a great opportunity that will help them press forward.

The president, Sra. Juana, lives with her husband. She is an artisan who works with “ñanduti” (a traditional lace produced in Paraguay). Juana produces dance skirts that are of great quality and then sells them. She also decorates sandals with details made of “ñanduti”. Juana and her fellow group members engage in constant activities in order to strengthen their friendship and accomplish their goals.

Juana is requesting a loan to buy thread, dyes, needles, and other necessary supplies for making “ñanduti”. This will help her continue production.
