Kuña Kuera Ipyapyva Group's story

The group called “Kuña Kuera Ipyapyva” is in its second loan cycle within the program of poverty elimination. One of its members is Juana who works selling cosmetics, and with this she helps her family.
She joined the committee in order to be able to offer her family a dignified life. She comments that, despite obstacles, she struggles restlessly to give her loved ones all that she was not able to have.
She is requesting this loan to buy cosmetics of all types and to continue with her business as she has been doing so far. She is grateful for the opportunity to be part of this group so she can receive training and improve.
