Kuña Katuete Group's story
Maria had experience selling clothes in a local market so when she was invited to join a micro-finance Trust Group, she decided to start her own business selling clothes in her neighborhood. She is grateful for the opportunity to work from home, especially now that her 14 year old son is doing his school work from home because of the COVID-19 pandemic. With her current loan, Maria will purchase clothing in bulk to take back and sell in her community. She dreams of one day building a clothing shop and also having her own vehicle to make deliveries. Others in Maria's group sell perfumes, sell intimates and clothing, or have general stores. Due to strict social gathering restrictions in Paraguay caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Maria's group cannot meet regularly so she is the only one who appears in their group profile photo.
