Kuña Guapa Group's story

The Kuña Guapa committee is requesting its third loan. This group is made up of very hard working women, many of whom are single mothers.

In this group, the loans are used for the individual businesses of the members which include: the recycling of paper; selling coal and plastics; buying ingredients for baked goods and pastries, such as the Paraguayan national “empanada”; fruits and vegetables to sell in their stores; the sale of cosmetics such as lipsticks, creams, shampoos and deodorants; the sale of candy; the sale of fabric for tailoring clothing, bedsheets and towels, skirts and shorts; the sale of herbs and remedies; and the sale of sausages and sweetmeats.

One of the women in this committee, Juliana P., is 48 years old and has a remarkably inspiring story of her entrepreneurial success. She has three children, and is a single mother. She buys charcoal, and every morning loads it up on her cart to deliver around her area. She comes back home at lunch and then sets out in the afternoon to pick up recycling and sort it to sell. She is very patient and works hard to make a living to support her children.

In this group: Juliana, Nidia, Maria, Ursula, Susana, Amada, Benancia, Evangelista, Mirian, Deisy, Romina, Clara, Irmina, Emilce, Susana
