A loan of $3,650 helped a member to buy clothes to sell.

Unidas Group's story

This committee was formed thanks to one of its members who motivated her friends and neighbors to become part of a group of entrepreneurial women in the Paraguayan Foundation. They were delighted and accepted being part of the committee which they call “Mujeres unidas” (United Women). There are now 22 members and each one has a small business.

Zulma is an example of a fighter because she now helps her family with her effort and the work that she does. With her small clothing sales business she can help them each day by lightening the household expenses a little. Her dream is to some day have a big clothing store where she can offer a large variety to her customers.

In this group: Lirda, Carmen, Maria, Priscila, Gloria, Ursulina, Eulalia, Luisa, Claudia, Maria, Zulma, Maria, Francisca, Estelvina, Albina, Patricia, Juana, Nimia, Lisandra*, Irma*, Ninfa*, Avelina*
