A loan helped a member to purchase vegetables, fruit, greens, baked goods, meat and other products.


Kuña Katupyry Group's story

The group called Kuña Katypyry was formed with the union of friends and neighbors in the city of Asunción. They were looking for a way to improve their quality of life and give their family a better quality of life so that they don't have to go without any type of necessities.

Nancy is one of the members who earns her living through a business. She has a modest general store where she works every day beginning early in the morning. She says that her work allows her to be able to give her family everything for a better quality of life and so that they don't have to go without necessities.

In addition, Nancy says that she has seen her sales and income be affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. For this reason she can't cover all of her obligations, but she says that she doesn't allow herself to be defeated and she looks for ways to improve herself and offer the best to her family through her work.

Nancy is requesting this loan to be able to invest in her business and purchase greens, vegetables, fruits, baked goods, meat and other products so that she can continue her sales.
