Kuña Guapa Group's story

The Kuña Guapa committee is in full development of its fourth loan cycle working with the Fundación’s advisers in activities and training sessions.

Each member is involved in a different money-making activity without losing their cooperative spirit and desire to work together to meet their goal to improve their families’s quality of life more rapidly.

We can highlight Candida’s case. She is 43 years old and has a son, who is in secondary school. During the week she works outside the home. On weekends, she prepares meals that she sells in front of her house. She is a widow so her life is hard because she alone cares for her family.

She has a small house which she would like to enlarge in order to open a snack bar and serve meals. She is grateful for the help from the Fundación; she wants to remodel her home. She is her household’s sole provider.
