Kuña Guapa Group's story

This group was formed in the San Lorenzon neighborhood in Caaguazu City. Mrs. Zulma Valentina S. became familiar with the program through some promotions in her neighborhood; since there were many interested women on her block, they decided to form the Enterprising Women Group. The group consists of 16 hard-working women who enthusiastically got together to form a group with joint responsibility that depended on teamwork.

One group member, Zulma, began to work selling clothing after becoming part of the group. Currently zulma sells the clothes out of the front room of her home where she displays her merchandise for sale. She has 4 school-aged children and her husband is a contractor for home construction. They are two self-sacrificing individuals who fight to help their family; they are very pleased that their children are doing well in school which is a major goal for Zulma and her husband.

She is grateful to the Foundation for the support provided to her and her fellow group members.

In this group: Zulma Valentina, Maria Deidamia, Asuncion, Maria Lina, Zulma , Maria, Blanca, Bernarda, Adelina, Maria A, Maria De Jesus, Blanca , Maria, Rosalia, Norma, Claudia
