Mujeres Unidas De Fernando Group's story

The committee named “Mujeres Unidas de Fernando” (Fernando’s United Women) was organized more than four years ago and works with Fundación Paraguaya. The members have improved in their work and are getting better each day as a result of the training seminars and the support they have received.

Sra. Claudia is a woman with limited resources. For this reason, she recycles materials such as cardboard, plastics, aluminum, and other items. Claudia says that her work requires great sacrifice and can be very tiring, but it allows her to provide what her family needs. She is very proud of what she has accomplished since she has never had to gain anything through dishonest means. Her job gives her a way to make a decent and honest living.

Claudia is requesting a loan so that she can buy plastics, aluminum, and cardboard in quantity that she can sell. This will help her achieve better earnings so that she can continue helping her family.
