Fundación Capital is a nonprofit social enterprise working to improve the financial lives of people living in poverty around the world.
In Paraguay, gender-based violence occurs in all economic strata but intensifies in situations of vulnerability. According to data from the Women's Observatory, for both 2018 and 2019, it was observed that 95% of femicides occurred in economically vulnerable strata, characterized by poverty or extreme poverty.
In 2021, we initiated a collaborative effort to address the needs and different contexts faced by Paraguayan women, involving the Ministry of Women, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the Interinstitutional Platform for the Prevention of Violence against Women, the Global Compact, and Fundación Capital. This collaboration resulted in a digital solution called "Cora." This application integrates essential information on gender-based violence, providing guidance to individuals on what to do in a violent situation, where to seek help, how to support a victim, and the option to create a network of safe contacts.
