Las Tejedoras Group's story

This group is called ”las tejedoras” and is from the city of Caacupé. Even if it is a large group, they get along very well and help each other, because they know that by cooperating, they will do things in a better way and will be able to help their families.

The group’s president, Mrs. Norma, lives together with her husband and children. She makes handicrafts in ñanduti (a special kind of hand-made knitting) and also sells clothes. Norma says that she wants to inculcate in her children the art of ñanduti, a beautiful art and cultural heritage.

Norma is requesting this loan to buy threads and different needles needed for knitting. This is her largest source of income and her way to help her husband with the expenses.

In this group: Norma Beatriz, Celsa, Nelly, Mirta, Silvana, Myrian, Mary, Myrian, Mirta, Maria, Dionisia, Maria Lisa, Maria Clara, Angelina, Gilda, Carolina, Dionela, Cinthia, Isabel, Nilfa, Maria*, Nelly*
