Kuña Aty Mbarete Group's story

This communal banking group is in its first loan cycle. The women chose as a goal the desire to grow, not just economically but also as people. Among them Gilda stands out. She is both a member of the group as well as President of the organization.

She is a hard-working and self-sacrificing person who fights every day for her family in order to give them what she was not able to have. She works selling clothing and shoes and she comments that through this business she has been able to generate income to help her family.

She is asking for a loan in order to buy shoes and clothing of various kinds to sell. In this way she plans to continue with her sales, as she has been doing.
