A loan of $925 helped a member to buy clothing and shoes.

Jovenes En Accion Group's story

This group of young entrepreneurs started in July 2012. They're called Jóvenes en Acción and there are nine members. They're a very responsible group with an excellent payment record. They have training meetings and are very supportive with each other. They're grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for the opportunities offered to young people who want to set up businesses so they can contribute at home and help their families.

One of the stories that stands out is Luz's. She's 16 years old and has worked as a street vendor for two years. She and her mother travel every weekend to Ciudad del Este, where they go around the city on foot together to sell their products.

She wants to have a space in the future so she doesn't have to travel many kilometers to have a better income.

She's requesting this loan to be able to invest in buying clothing and shoes to sell and continue with her goal.

In this group: Elisa, Luz, Jeremías, Damaris, Luz, Leo, Fredi, Dario, Rebeca*
