Kuña Pora Group's story

This group is called Kuña Pora and comprises friends and neighbours from the town of Encarnación. It is in its eighth loan cycle, and all the women seek ways to improve their own standard of living and that of their families.

Mariela is a member of the group. She is a person who has given up a lot. She began with very little and thanks to effort and hard work, she is getting ahead. She is a seamstress and has a modest workshop where she works every day from early in the morning. With this work she helps her husband raise their three children.

Mariela is grateful for the opportunity to be part of the group since it will be a great help to be able to invest in her business and improve it. She is seeking this loan to buy fabric in quantity so she can fulfil her customers' orders and continue with her work.
