Santa Librada Group's story

Santa Librada [Saint Wilgefortis] is a group composed of 21 women, all of whom are friends and neighbors from this city. They are known in the neighborhood through the community bank they work with, and it's precisely because of this that they have been able to get ahead and grow. Currently they're in their third cycle of the women's entrepreneur program at Fundación Paraguaya, and they're very happy with it.

Viviana is a dressmaker. She says that she works every day in her shop, which is set up in her home. She tells us that the majority of her neighbors always give her a lot of work, which helps her to be able to maintain her home. She is a very hardworking and determined person who wants to keep working to help her family.

Viviana is asking for a loan to buy fabric, thread, and elastic, among other things, with which she will be able to stock up and have more materials to do her work.
