Serenidad Group's story

The Serenidad group is from the city of Itá. It has 16 members who are all very hard-working and entrepreneurial women who have a great desire to work and make progress in life. Thanks to their efforts, they are now in their 12th loan cycle within Fundación Paraguaya' Women's Program.

Apolonia is a member of this group. She tells us that being a member of the group has really helped not only herself but also the other members of her family. Apolonia's business is sewing and she says that, through this work, she has been able to help her family and provide for them on a daily basis.

Apolonia is requesting this loan to buy fabric which will enable her to continue working and helping her family members.
