Kuña Pyapy Mbarete Maria Auxiliadora Group's story

The committee is called "Kuña Pyapy Mbarete" and is composed of 23 very active and supportive women. They are all friends and neighbors and want to progress and help their children and relatives. Their common goal is growth, both economical and personal.

Maris is one of the group members. She says that she sells various kinds of garments. She began with a small store, which thanks to her effort and sacrifice managed to succeed and grow. Her goal is to continue helping her family and at the same time growing her small business.

Maris turned to the microfinance institution Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva for financial support to buy garments of various qualities, which she will stock in her store in order to have a larger product range to offer to her customers.
