Mujeres Valientes Group’s story
This committee, called “Valiant Women,” is currently in its first loan cycle. It is composed of 20 married women, all of whom are independent and enterprising. These married women are very confident that they can continue to grow with the help offered by Fundacion Paraguaya through its program.
Fatima is a very beautiful married woman who operates a beauty shop in her own home. She has a well-established clientele, thanks to her good work. Fatima comments that with great sacrifice, her business has been growing little by little and improving daily.
Fatima is requesting this loan to be able to supply her beauty parlor with tints, creams, shampoo, rinses and other items, and in this manner, to be able to continue working as she has been doing.
