A loan of $4,800 helped a member to buy fabric and thread.

Luchando Todas Juntas Group's story

This group, from the city of Encarnación, came about when one of the members contacted the Foundation. The group is on its 19th loan, and has been working with the Foundation since 2011. They have learned a lot during the time that they have been together. One of the members is Maria who has a son and is married to Rodolfo. She has worked as a dress maker for many years. She says that her and her husband try very hard to get ahead; they help each other and hope to be able to keep moving forward to give their son a decent life. She is requesting this loan to buy fabric and thread to continue working and completing her clients' orders. The group was given its name Luchando Todas Juntas (Women Striving Together) because all of the members strive together to get ahead and be the best at what they do.

In this group: Maria Lourdes, Maria, Sindy, Benita, Katia, Maria, Nelida, Rut, Sady, Cynthia, Martha, Cynthia, Zoraida*
