Kuña Marangatu Group's story

This committee was formed as a result of the women’s wish to be part of a communal group. One of the group members is Francisca who sells food, beverages, snacks, etc. in a small eatery in her home.

She rises very early in the morning to prepare her meals because customers start coming by her locale quite early. In the mornings she prepares breakfasts at special prices, she does the same during lunch. Thanks to her good customer service, she has a sizable regular customer base and thus good profits.

She is asking for funds to invest in her eatery; she plans to use the funds to buy glass display cases with warming lights installed to keep the food in good condition. She will also buy some merchandise she needs.

All the group members are grateful for the loans provided because they make the work that each one does easier.

In this group: Francisca, Catalina, Mariela Carolina, Marcela, Selva Dejesús, Liliana, María Anuncia, María Elizabeth, María Alicia, Rosa María, Heber Felicita, Mirna Mariela, Mirian Elizabeth, Hipólita, Eufemia*, Ana Beatríz*, Rosa Natalia*
