The Poverty Stoplight team consists of a young, energetic group of people from around the world, all of whom are passionate about human and social development.
The team is made up of three departments: Methodology, Operations and Community. Among us, we speak many languages, and hold different expertise, but we are united by our ambition to change the world.

Fundación Paraguaya is a self-sustainable, non-governmental organization. Since its foundation in 1985, it has spearheaded microfinance and entrepreneurship in Paraguay. With more than 450 staff in 28 offices across the country, Fundación Paraguaya develops and implements practical, innovative, and sustainable solutions to eliminate poverty in order to create decent conditions for all families using four inter-related strategies:
A microcredit program, which serves more than 86.000 small and emerging micro-entrepreneurs who are largely ignored by other microfinance institutions;
A program of entrepreneurial and financial education for children and youth;
A program of financially self-sustainable farming high-schools that train the sons and daughters of vulnerable farmers to become their own “rural entrepreneurs;”
TeachAManToFish, a separate NGO established in London that helps spread the Fundación’s financially self-sufficient school model around the world.
