Mujeres Activas Group's story

The committee is integrated by 18 hard working women from the area of Cabañas, in the city of Caacupé. They are all micro entrepreneurs who are in the eight cycle of the program of the committee of the Entrepreneurial Womens through which each member receives 550 000 guaranis.

At the beginning, the committee started its meetings at Francisca C.'s home. Francisca is the current president of the committee and she can be very demanding towards her colleagues, specially the ones who are unpunctual.
The committee organizes events, like parties for kids at the church's courtyard in order to collect some funds.
Mrs Francisca says that the only way to give satisfaction to the children is to work together. Moreover, she says that thanks to the Fundación Paraguaya they were able to create a commission in order to organize activities in the community as to clean the church's courtyard, the streets, the main square, etc.

The women in the committee will use the loan they request now in order to invest in they different activities as to sell homemade candies, potato chips, charcoal, chicken, food and beverages.

In this group: Francisca, Elvira, Inocencia, Marta, Bienvenida, Felipa, Maria, Elva, Juliana, Lidia, Clementina, Hilaria, Angelina, Pablina, María, Luciana, Liliana, Yenny
