A loan of $3,125 helped a member to buy natural medicines to sell.


Las Emprendedoras Group's story

The "Las Emprendedoras" committee has been working with Fundación Paraguaya for two years. All of the women have their own businesses into which they put as much effort as possible so that the businesses grow and they become better micro-entrepreneurs.

Ignacia is a member of this committee. She joined the group through financial need as she wanted to be able to cover her various household expenses. Ignacia is an itinerant street vendor who sells natural medicines. She also recycles materials such as aluminum, plastic, paper, metal, etc. She hopes for a better future for her children and this is why she works so hard every day. She wants to give them the opportunity to study and enjoy a better future.

Ignacia is requesting this loan to buy natural medicines to sell so that she can continue giving her family everything she possibly can.

In this group: Francisca Catalina, Ani, Ana, Mirian, Ignacia, Rafaela, Elvia, Lourdes, Marcelina, Fanny, Librada, Elvira, Ada
