25 Aug YO DIGO SÍ: A CAMPAIGN TO SUPPORT 100 ENTREPRENEURIAL WOMEN IN PARAGUAY
“Yo Digo Sí” facilitates investing in the small businesses of 100 rural women, and helps them overcome their difficult situation and improve wellbeing for themselves and their families. The selection of entrepreneurial women was carried out within the framework the program Sembrando Oportunidades Familia por Familia (Sowing Opportunities Family by Family), with support from Fundación Capital, a program that provided the participant families with education, constant support in their households, and seed capital to start their own business.
The campaign is possible thanks to an award given by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to Fundación Capital at the 58th Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors. This award recognizes our influential work with vulnerable families in Paraguay, and the resources of this prize will ensure one-third of the necessary funds for the entrepreneurial projects of the 100 women. The remaining two-thirds are expected to be collected through the “Yo Digo Sí” campaign, which runs until October 15th.
“Yo Digo Sí” is a great opportunity for the female entrepreneurs to consolidate their existing businesses or invest in new ones, allowing them to generate income and escape poverty in an effective and sustainable way. The goal is to disburse Gs. 1.600.000 to each one of these women for them to use in their businesses.
The campaign’s launch event was held this Friday in the IDB offices in Paraguay, with the presence of Eduardo Almeida, representative of the BID in Paraguay, Adriana Insaurralde, resident representative of Fundación Capital, and Cristina Heisecke, coordinator of the campaign.
