Emprendedoras Katupyry Group's story

This committee is called Emprendedoras Katupyry. It was formed by the desire for improvement of all the members of the group. They are female heads of household who, despite the difficulties, seek the way to be able to offer their families everything they were unable to have.

One of them is Verónica, who works selling food she makes herself and which she sells as a street vendor. She states that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, her business was affected since, because of the total quarantine in the country, she was unable to work normally and this, in turn, affected her income. She states that she seeks the way to be able to improve her business, invest capital in it, and get it back up and running.

She asks for this loan to be able to purchase supplies to be able to continue making her foods. She wants to purchase meat, baked goods, vegetables, seasonings, and other products, which will help her to be able to boost her business and continue improving.
