Kuña Aty Group's story

The committee is called Kuña Aty. This group is in its first cycle with 14 members, all enterprising women who have proposed goals, including to improve their living conditions through cooperative work and solidarity.

Among them Fatima stands out. She is a young woman who works very hard as a domestic employee in a family home until midday, and in the afternoon she makes empanadas to sell. She is a fighter who looks for a way to be able to get ahead and provide better living conditions for her family through her work.

She is requesting this loan in order to be able to buy supplies to make empanadas, like meat, chicken, ham, cheese, eggs, and other ingredients. She is grateful for the opportunity to be able to join the group, which will be of great help to her.
