A loan helped a member to refinance debt and invest capital into clothing for their sales.

Kuña Mbarete Group's story

The group Kuña Mbarete is made up of a group of friends and neighbors, where all of the members set themselves the goal of being able to grow, not only economically, but also as people.

Among them it is important to mention Zunilda, who for the sustainment of her family works selling clothing. She mentions that her work has allowed her to cover the necessary household costs of her family, but she also mentions that she has had difficulty with her work in this time while the world is facing the crisis due to the spread of Covid-19. It has prevented her from working normally and generating the means that she needs to be able to help her family and cover her costs completely. This is why she needs to refinance her debt and invest capital in her business, to build it up.

She is asking for this loan to refinance debt and buy a variety of clothing to supply her business, and in this way be able to invest in her business to bring it out of this crisis.
