Kuña Guapa Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy drinks, baked goods, vegetables, fruit, canned goods, and other products to sell.


Kuña Guapa Group's story

The Kuña Guapa group started when a group of friends and neighbors came together in the city of Luque, looking for a way to improve the quality of life for themselves and their loved ones. They are in their first cycle of the women's committee program, and they are also taking part in the poverty elimination program.

Aurelina is one of them. She sells things, and has a modest shop in her home which she was able to open with great effort and sacrifice. She has been making improvements to it little by little, working very hard to do so.

She says that she saw an opportunity in joining the group, because she could receive training and make good use of her loan to be able to continue to improve her business.

She is requesting this loan to be able to buy assorted products for her store, such as drinks, baked goods, vegetables, fruit, canned goods, meat, and other products to sell.

Please note: While this is a group loan, there is only one person in the photograph in order to avoid gathering people together due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
