A loan of $5,400 helped a member to buy clothes to subsequently sell on.

Py Renda Group's story

This committee was formed by two of its members who approached the offices of the Fundación Paraguaya to learn more about the Committee of Entrepreneurial Women program. They invited their friends and neighbors to join and together they decided to form the work group in order to get ahead and improve their way of life. They are made up of 19 hardworking and modest women who have to earn a living for themselves everyday.

Romelia is a very hardworking and determined woman. She says that by selling clothes she has been able to get ahead in life and therefore help her family. She says that her dream is to have a big premises where she can supply her customers. She is requesting the loan to buy t-shirts, shirts, pants and other kinds of clothes so that she can stock up and offer her customers more choice.
