Mujeres Del Futuro Group's story

These 12 women formed a communal bank in the city of Encarnacion. They are friends and neighbors from this city, and they got together seeing a great opportunity to make progress and help their families. They are now in their 4th loan cycle, and they want to continue to grow.

One of the members of this group is Edita. She has a pastry business that she runs out of her house. She makes all types of pastries,and she always has a lot of work because her pastries are very popular. She does very good quality work, and her business is doing well. She really enjoys her work, because it is honest and decent work. She is requesting a loan to buy supplies because she wants to continue making the pastries that she sells.

This group appreciates the opportunity that they are receiving, because it will enable them to help their families.
