Mujeres Emprendedoras 2 Group's story

The communal bank "Mujeres Emprendedoras," from the city of Concepción, is in its 4th loan cycle with the Program of Women's Committees of Fundación Paraguaya. They meet in an area that is still growing, which is located outside of the central part of the city. These members come from outlying areas, and they are trying to grow to help their families.

Lucia is one of the members. She has a small pastry shop where she works every day from the early hours of the morning. She is striving to get ahead. She hopes that over time, and through the help of everyone in her neighborhood, they can improve their environment and in this way offer better security to their families while also providing them with a better future.

Lucia is requesting this loan to buy supplies for her pastry shop, such as flour, eggs, vanilla, butter, and other items. This way, she can continue with her sales and grow her business, enabling her to provide for her family's needs so that they can have a life free from deprivation.
