A loan helped a member to buy pencils, book-bags, paintbrushes, and other products.


Kuña Guapa Group's story

The group known as "Kuña Guapa" is in its cycle no. 8 with the women's committee program, where all help one another to get ahead. They are making a study of poverty-elimination, in order to recognize their life situation and, according to this, to be able to fight to improve and get ahead.

One of the members is Jorgelina, who works in sales. She has a bookstore where she offers all sorts of products to her clients. She's a hard-working person who is always looking for a way to offer her clients variety at a good price. She mentions, moreover, that her work has enabled her to be able to help with the sustenance for her household and her family, and in this way, to be able to give them everything that she wasn't able to have.

She's requesting this loan to be able to buy pencils, book-bags, paintbrushes, and other things, and in this way, to be able to continue with her sales as she's been doing.
