Kuña Guapa Group's story

The group is called Kuña Guapa, which means hard-working woman. They joined together to be able to work together, united to be able to offer their loved ones everything they were unable to have.

One of them is Maria, who works in a beauty salon. She says that she has a modest salon in which she works every day tirelessly. She says that today she has an established customer base who always go to her business for the good service she always gives her customers. She is a hard-working person who struggles for her family so that they do not have to experience hardships.

She asks for this loan to be able to purchase supplies for her beauty salon, such as spray, shampoo, rinses, dyes, and other products to be able to continue with her service as she has been doing.
