Renacer Group's story

15 km from the Office of Paraguiri, in the city of Yaguarón, a group of women who wanted to start businesses joined together so that they could increase their working capital, and thus improve their quality of life and that of their families. The women contacted Fundación Paraguaya in order to learn about its program, and when Fundación Paraguaya offered them an opportunity they accepted it, since no other institution had already made them an offer.

The group is made up of women who work in different productive activities that allow them to generate income for their families. Gilda P. is a dressmaker and has many customers who go to her house to order suits and uniforms for their jobs. Isabel, Francisca, Bernadita, Leoncia, and Edith run refectories in different schools, where they mainly sell fast food, candy, and soft drinks.

Basílica S. and Graciela O. each have a grocery store where they sell all kinds of merchandise. Reina Q., Amalia Saldívar and Patricia V. make a living selling various fruits and vegetables. Florentina is a craftswoman and makes a living weaving traditional Paraguayan fabrics.

Emilce Gonzáles and Amelia F. have a kiosk, while Felicita C. is a street vendor who sells a variety of merchandise. Gilda Martínez works as a domestic servant and wants to buy a variety of merchandise so she can sell it and thus increase her income. Finally, we have Cándida V., who makes a living selling Chipa, which is one of the most popular traditional foods in Paraguay.

The name of this group is Renacer, and it is made up of 17 active and enterprising women. They are currently in their fourth loan cycle and have an excellent rating.

In this group: Gilda, Isabel, Basílica, Reina, Florentina, Francisca, Bernardita, Amalia, Leoncia, Graciela, Emilce, Felicita, Gilda, Edith, Patricia, Cándida, Amelia
