Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

The Mujeres Emprendedoras group is in its 15th cycle with the committee program. All of them are friends and neighbors in the city of Encarnación. They have seen a great opportunity for growth, and that is why they decided to unite and work together. They are taking the elimination of poverty survey in order to know about each of their situations.

Aurora is one of the members. She sells sweet and savory food. The loan that she is requesting is to buy supplies to make the food. She has a very good demand, and her customers always place orders with her. She says that in the last survey she was within the poverty line. However, she put forth great effort, and this way she was able to improve and grow.

In this group: Elba, Bienvenida, Guillermina, Wilma, Felicita, Aurora, Juliana, Elvira, Mariana, Patricia, Gladys, Carlina, Lurdes, Nidia, Teodolina*, Myrian*, Johana*
