To face the challenge of female financial inclusion, the joint programme of the SDG Fund in Paraguay worked in the last three years with the Government supporting groups of women entrepreneurs. They promoted half a hundred savings groups made up solely of women, indigenous people and peasants. More than 800 women have had, for the first time, access to a savings account. "We are extremely happy with the experience", says Regina Sosa, President of the Administrative Committee of the Toro Kangué Community Savings Group, rural department of Caaguazú. This savings group is composed of twelve women and one man, who actively work in the community organization. "Most beneficiaries thought it would be difficult to save, but as they developed the methodology of the program, they discovered that it was possible."
