Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

"Mujeres Luchadoras" (fighting women) is a group made up of twelve women from the city of Caacupé. These women are heads of family and want to help their children to have a better future than they had themselves, and this is why they are giving their best day after day. Their shared objective is growth, not only economic but also personal.
Carmen sells chipas (sort of cheese buns) and says that she is doing very well, because her chipas are in high demand. She sells them hawking in the streets, a very tiring job, but nevertheless she loves what she is doing because it is a decent and respectable activity. She applies for this loan to buy chipas, which will enable her to continue to work and grow in her small business. She is very happy for the support received by the microfinance institution Fundación Paraguaya.
