Mujeres Unidas Group's story

Mujeres Unidas ("United Women") is a group made of 16 women, neighbours and friends from the city of Villa Elisa. The group saw the great help that the field partner's programme could be and decided to join Fundación Paraguaya. Paulina is the group's president; she prepares and sells meals at her home. Her husband and children help with this business, enabling her in turn to help with household expenses, which can represent quite a sum. Paulina says that her goal is to own a small restaurant where she could sell her meals and thus increase her income and help her family all the more. She asks for this loan in order to buy meat, condiments, vegetables, garden produce, and other ingredients to continue preparing the meals she sells.

In this group: Paulina Concepción , Jorgelina , Zulma , Antonia , Fátima , Nathalia , Zully , María , Felicita , Norma , Marta , Ángela , Liz , Tomasa , Natividad , Miguela
