Mingueras Solidarias Group's story

"Mingueras Solidarias" is the name of this communal bank from Ciudad del Este. The group consists of 14 women who are all friends and neighbors from the same area. They are in their 6th loan cycle in the Committee of Women program in the Fundacion Paraguaya. The members are taking the poverty elimination survey to understand the situation of each one of the members.

Dorila is the only one who, according to the survey, is at a very low level of income. She is aware that the only way to see growth is through her efforts and hard work, and so for this reason she is putting everything she has into her work. She is a housewife, but she is also starting up a business selling food. She is requesting this loan to buy vegetables, meat, condiments, flour, and other supplies she needs to start up her business and thereby increase her income.

In this group: Francisca, Viviana, Raquel, Mirian, Ana, Zunilda, Liz, Maria, Severiana, Paola, Ignacia, Mirian, Dorila, Rosana*
