Kuña Katupyry Group's story

The 'Kuña Katupyry' committee is another group from Fundación Paraguaya's 'Entrepreneurial Women' program. They are from the town of Villa Ygatimi. Since the group started out, they have demonstrated unity and solidarity. Six of the group's members are indigenous people who never had access to loans from other companies. One of the members of this group is Serafina who raises animals such as pigs and hens. She is a woman of limited financial resources but she is very hard-working. Her dream is to own a farm where she can raise more animals and thereby continue helping her family. Serafina is requesting a loan to buy chicks and pigs to raise as she would like to be able to grow her business and have more animals which will make her good profits.

In this group: Serafina, Norma , Agustina , Marcelina , Maria , Lidia , Dilsa , Dionisia , Jervacia , Celestina
