Kuña Mbarete Group's story

Kuña Mbarete is the name of this committee, which means strong woman. They are entrepreneurs and seek the way for their loved ones not to lack anything. They are also in the poverty elimination program, where they all seek the way to be able to help their loved ones.

Julia is one of them. She works selling food, she has a modest eatery where she offers good-quality products for her customers. It is in this way that she offers her family what she was unable to have. She is grateful to be able to be part of the group, which will be of great help to her and will allow her to get her loved ones ahead.

She asks for this loan to purchase raw materials to make her food, such as vegetables, seasonings, baked goods meat, and other products, to be able to continue working.
