Kuña Mbarete Group's story

This group is called Kuña Mbarete, and it is in its fifth loan cycle with the women's committee. The women set themselves the goal of growing not just financially but also personally. They are in the poverty elimination program, fighting for a better life so that their loved ones have everything they need.

One of them is Maria, who makes a living selling pizza. She says that she has a modest business she works at every day and has a regular clientele she always takes orders from. This business has enabled her to help cover household expenses and support her family.

She is glad to have this opportunity to continue with her work and meet her goals. She is requesting this loan in order to purchase pizza ingredients and utensils so that she can continue doing her work.

Note: There is only one person in the photo, but this is a group loan. A group photo was impossible because of social distancing requirements of the Covid-19 pandemic.
