Nuevas Emprendedoras Group's story

Twenty-one women from the city of Caaguazú have united in order to work together, help each other, and manage to get ahead by doing so. They are head-of-household women who want to help their children get ahead. Maria Antonia is the President of the group and works in food sales (empanadas, Paraguayan soup, croquettes). She works day after day, starting very early in the morning, which is when she prepares her food. She says that she helps her family through her work, and that is how they get ahead. Her dream is to be able to have her own business location, so that she may offer her customers more comfort. She is requesting the loan to purchase sugar, flour, eggs, oil, meat, and other ingredients, so that she can continue to prepare the food she sells. She is grateful that she and her friends are being given this kind of opportunity.
