A loan helped a member to buy fresh fruit and vegetables to sell.

Kuña Pora Group's story

The group called "Kuña Pora" is made up of 20 women, all of which are from the town of Pilar. They work different productive jobs, trade and delivery services and they mention that due to the Covid19 pandemic, their work has been affected as they have not been able to work normally.

One of them is Rocio who works selling fruit. Her job is her means of being able to help her family. It is for this reason that she fights to build it up despite of the daily difficulties and she does not let it overcome her, especially now that she cannot work due to the Covid pandemic.

Her goal is to be able to build up her business again and invest capital to improve it.

She is asking for this loan to be able to buy a quantity of fruit to be able to improve her business and be able to continue working as she has been doing.
