Mburucuya Group's story

The “Mburucuya” committee in the city of San Lorenzo is composed of 17 very hardworking women who recognize in Fundación Paraguaya’s Enterprising Women Program a great opportunity for progress for themselves and their families. They are very active and recognized in their neighborhood for their unity and companionship.

Petrona is a barber and she comments that she joined the group very much hoping to get ahead and through teamwork be able to help each other out. She says that she does very well in her business because she has a well-established regular clientele that always comes to her shop and thanks to this she’s been able to grow and improve her living conditions.

She requests the loan to buy supplies she needs for her shop like combs, rollers, spray, gel, coloring and other supplies. She is grateful for this opportunity she’s getting.
