Kuña Marangatu Group's story

In the Virgen Sagrado Corazón de Jesús neighborhood of the city of Carapegua, located some 23km from the city center, some women of limited means found out about a program called Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras (Committee of Enterprising Women), so they decided to get together to obtain some information about it. They are now very active entrepreneurs, and the majority of the group members are in sales, provide cleaning services, or partake in other types of businesses. They are looking for a bit more support in order to boost their family income by means of this loan, thus improving their quality of life.

One of the group members is Rosalba, who makes and sells food. She runs this business from home with the help of her family, who carry out the different tasks that are required.

Among the dishes that she offers, she also sells milk or chocolate pastries, and cakes. She is requesting this loan in order to purchase the kitchen utensils she needs, such as pans, saucepans, pots, plates, and other supplies.

She is grateful to the organization for the helping women to get ahead in life.

In this group: Rosalba, Jorgelina, Porfiria, Graciela, Tomasa, Ramona, Yohana, Cinthia, Antonia, Julia, Francisca, Berta, Geronimo, Lisa, Ramona, Petrona
