Mujeres En Ritmo Group's story

The “Mujeres in Ritmo” committee was formed with the intention to better the members’ quality of life. The group members already carry out a productive activity. They will receive an average loan of 300,000 PYG that will be used to amplify and diversity the activities in which they are currently engaged, such as: the purchase of supplies for food preparation; to purchase milk, sugar, tea, flour, salt, baked goods, and vegetables to be later sold; to purchase beverages such as soft drinks, beer, wine, etc; to purchase and sell formalwear. The group members long for a future with greater opportunities for their children, and for that reason they double their efforts to diminish household necessities to be able to offer them opportunities to study and find a good job.
