Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

The Mujeres Emprendedoras group is in its ninth loan cycle in the program of the women's committee, in which they all work and help each other mutually to get ahead. They're doing the poverty-elimination survey, which allows them to determine each one's economic situation. Almost all the members already managed to get above the poverty line through the business plan and sales techniques trainings.

One of the members is Luisa, who came out at the middle level in her last survey. She says that, because of all her work, she has a stronger store after having the loans from Fundación Paraguaya. The work she does should also be highlighted because she always makes the maximum effort to grow and get ahead.

She's requesting this loan to buy flour, sugar, noodles, oil, milk, beverages, and other things. This will help her firm up her business plan, which will help her improve her income.

In this group: Rosalba, Oilda, Gladys, Aurelia, Rosa, Daisy, Lucia, Cladis, Luisa, Maria, Blanca, Sandra, Blanca, Teresa, Gilda, Marta, Claudelina*, Arminda*, Lucia*
