Nueva Esperanza Group's story

The Comité Nueva Esperanza (new hope committee) is from the city of Caaguazú. They are currently in their fourth loan cycle. The group is comprised of humble, hardworking women who fight day-to-day in order to come out ahead. They decided to form a mutually supportive group and to work as a team—so responsibility is a very important factor. Each member has independent work which the Fundación Paraguaya helps support, giving them the opportunity to surmount barriers both personal and familial. Maria is the president of the group. She makes her living selling electronic equipment, including spare parts for cell phones, radios, and televisions. She also tells us that her husband helps her in the business. She is requesting this loan in order to buy spare parts for cell phones, radios, and televisions. With these, she will be able to stock up and to satisfy her clients' requests. She is a very active and responsible woman and is grateful to the Fundación Paraguaya for the support that it affords women who want to overcome the obstacles they face.
