Mujeres Trabajando Juntas Group's story

The communal bank "Mujeres Trabajando Juntas" (Women Working Together) formed five years ago and works with Fundación Paraguaya. Most of the members are working at the moment. Marta, one of the members, joined the group because she needed work to help her family out. She sells herbal remedies as a street vendor and also collects recyclables such as aluminum, plastic, paper, and iron.

Marta hopes her children have a brighter future, so she works hard every day to give them the chance to go to school and achieve a better life. She is applying for a loan to buy aluminum, plastics, and paper to resell and increase her income.

In this group: Maria, Jacinta, Marta, Valvina, Daysi, Maria, Ignacia, Basilisa, Sonia, Liz, Sonia, Fatima, Adelaida, Pastora*
