Kuña Guapa Group's story

This committee is in its forth period and everyone is satisfied working together. One of the group's members we can talk about is Mrs. Sonia Esther Gavilan. She is forty years old and has three children, two of whom are in high school. She has a home-business selling hamburgers, sweets, and drinks. She also sells empanadas (turnovers) during the week. She, herself, makes and sells the food in front of her house. She is very attractive. She has her own house that she would like to expand to start a restaurant to sell food. She is grateful for the help she has received from the loans which have allowed her to help husband cover the household bills. She would like a loan to invest in the purchase of breads, sweets, drinks, and other things.
