Mujeres Buscando El Porvenir Group's story

The communal bank "Mujeres Buscando el Porvenir" (women seeking the future) is now in its second loan cycle, with eleven members. All are very sacrificing women of scarce resources; consequently they receive very little consideration and advantages. Now, thanks to Fundación Paraguaya, they can manage to accomplish their work as much within the committee as in their families.

Liz, one of the members, has a grocery store and also raises animals. She is a person who has always strived for her goal and wants to continue doing so. She is applying for this loan to be able to invest in the purchase of stock for her store and also for balanced feed for her animals.
