Mujeres Trabajadoras Group's story

The Mujeres Trabajadoras [Working Women] Group is in its first loan cycle of the women’s committee program. The group is located in the city of Caaguazú. They are learning to work together, and their goal is both the financial and personal growth of each member. Rigoberta is a member of this group. She joined the group in order to improve her and her family’s welfare. She wants her family to get ahead and not suffer any hardships. She runs her own small grocery store from which the people of her neighborhood obtain their basic grocery necessities. With her store, Rigoberta is able to pay some of the household expenses of her family. Rigoberta is requesting a loan to buy baked goods, dairy products, drinks, meats, vegetables, products in bulk and other grocery products. These products will help her continue to grow as a micro entrepreneur and give her family all that they need.
