Kuña Guapa Group's story

'Kuña Guapa' means 'hard-working woman' and that is what these 16 women from the city of Caaguazú are. They joined together as a group and have been working hard together. They are now in their ninth loan cycle.

Gasparina is an example of this work. She has a grocery store in which she works from very early in the morning until very late at night. At first, her business was very small but she gradually worked hard to strengthen it and now it is quite busy.

Gasparina is requesting this loan so that she can stock her business and thereby continue providing her customers with good quality and variety. She would like to be able to buy greens, veg, meat and other basic household products so that she can offer them all to her customers.

All the members of this group are happy with the program and would like to continue growing with it.

In this group: Silvina, Blasia Antonia, Virginia, Natividad, Lidia Mariana, Maria Norma, Gloria Betina, Ramona, Maria Clotilde, Maria Selva, Ramona, Gasparina, Maria Angela, Antonia, Maria Fátima*, Elsa*
