Mujeres En Acción Group's story

This comunal bank is in its 17th cycle. It is an exemplary communal bank that always works as a team, and the members help each other. They are very hard-working women who struggle for their children and their children’s future. Graciela has a sewing shop that is growing with four people. She says that thanks to her business she helps her family and covers the day to day expenses. Her goal is to be able to keep growing. This way she will be able to continue helping more people by providing a source of work. Graciela is requesting the loan to buy fabric, thread, elastic, buttons, and other supplies in order to be able to continue growing. They all are grateful for the opportunity they are getting from the Fundación Paraguaya and from Kiva.
