Kuña Kyrey Group's story

The communal bank called “Kuña kyrey” is in its sixth cycle with the women's committee program. All of the women in the program work and help one another to get ahead. Each one has a business, through which she strives to give her family a better standard of living.

One of the women is Catalina. She works making and selling kebabs and "chipas," a typical Paraguayan food that people eat all day long. Catalina is a hard-working woman who strives to provide a better quality of life, not just for herself but for her loved ones as well so they will want for nothing.

Catalina is requesting this loan so she can purchase starch, cheese, eggs, butter, salt, red meat, chicken and other ingredients to keep her business going like always.
