Mujeres Valientes Group's story

Mujeres Valientes is a group made up of 15 women from the city of Caacupé. They are women who are the heads of their families, and who are struggling tirelessly to be able to help their families. They wish to give them everything that they were not able to have and so that they don’t lack necessities. One of them, and an example to follow, is Diana, who makes a living selling chipas, which is a traditional food from Paraguay. She is a woman who is exerting herself to improve and to give her family everything that they need and want so that they have everything and are not lacking for anything. Diana is requesting this loan to be able to invest it in the purchase of chipas, and in this way be able to continue with her sales and have the income that she needs.

In this group: Nancy, Maria, Maria, Gladys, Geronima, Irene, Delia, Roselaida, Aurora, Diana, Marina, Luciana, Maria, Emilce, Benigna*
