Mujeres Trabajadoras Group's story

The communal bank "Mujeres Trabajadoras" is in its 7th loan cycle with the Women's Committee Program of Fundación Paraguaya. They are also participating in the institution's poverty elimination program, putting in maximum effort to improve their poverty situation.

One of the members is Nilda. She took the poverty elimination survey, and is working to improve her business and her financial situation. She comments that she has a well-stocked store, with which she is increasing her income and helping her family.

Nilda is requesting this loan to buy general products such as vegetables, meat, fruit, and other bulk products. This will help her to carry out her plans for her business, which will help her to increase her income. The children in the photograph are the children of the members.
