Kuña Aty Group's story

The group of women called Kuña Aty formed on January 29, 2009 thanks to the Director General, Juliana B. D. S., who is an artisan. She approached Fundación Paraguaya to learn about their Committee of Entrepreneuring Women program and the kind of work it involves. Once informed about the program, she assembled a group of 17 women. Already in their 2nd loan cycle, they have found that they work well together within the program.

The average loan per member is 470,000 guaranís. The money will be used in various activities, including the sale of beverages, coal, grocery items (rice, sugar, noodles, dairy products, baked goods, yerba tea, etc.), clothing, honey, tobacco, etc.

They all work to generate income and they help each other to achieve their common goals and those of Fundación Paraguaya. They actively participate in weekly meetings and work as a team, demonstrating a spirit of friendship and solidarity.

In this group: Juliana, Celsa , Ma. Carmen , Flora , Flavia , Alberta , Mercedes , Agueda , Jazmín , Miguela , Victoria , Ma. Lina , Lilian *, Ma. Nicolasa , Emilia , Cipriana , Celina
