Kuña Guapa Group's story

The Kuña Guapa committee from Luque’s San Juan neighborhood was organized thanks to an invitation from the Divino Niño Jesús committee of the same neighborhood to form a new group. Currently, the committee is in its third loan cycle with Programa Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras de la Fundación Paraguaya and is composed of 18 members who invest in various commercial activities. Each woman has a different and independent line or work but all share the spirit of unity and mutual help among themselves. We can emphasize Susana P.’s case: she sells clothing in various sales modalities. Sometimes she visits customers in their homes, other times she sets up a sales stand in front of her house. She enjoys her work very much because, through her sales, she is able to help her husband meet household expenses. She will use the funds to buy t-shirts, sweaters, pants, blouses, shorts, etc. The other members are involved in the following activities: 1 Susana P. Clothing sales 2 Romi C. Athletic shoe sales 3 Filomena A. Dairy products sales 4 Julia Y. Costume Jewelry Sales 5 Antonia E. Food Sales 6 Flamilia B. Handicrafts 7 Eulalia Y. Food Sales 8 Aida D.
