Ñemityra Group's story

The committee "Ñemityra" was formed from the initiative of Señora Buenaventura. They are indigenous women who make up part of a community in the city of Villa Ygatimi. They are currently in their first loan cycle. There are eleven members and thanks to the opportunity that they have received from the foundation, these women have been able to launch a business and help their families.

Buenaventura is the president of the group and she tells us that she breeds animals for a living, such as hens, pigs, goats and other kinds of animals. She says that it is a very difficult job and that it requires a lot of strength - not just physical but also mental. She is very happy with what she is doing because she knows that thanks to this job she will help her family.

Buenaventura is requesting the loan to buy food for the animals she is breeding because she does not want to be left without stock.

In this group: Buenaventura, Wilma, Bartola, Rysapy, Sulma, Claudia, Zulma, Estanislaa, Silvia, Petrona, Sixta*
