Kuña Guapa Group's story

The formation of this group was initiated by Señora Ninfa Amaye by inviting her neighbors and friends in the area to join. The group is called "Kuña Guapa". The 15 members are in their twelfth cycle. Each of them has a productive job.

Señora Gladis is one of the members who sells sweets and all kinds of Mexican and Chilean empanadas (turnovers) filled with chicken, ham and cheese, corn and other things. Everyday she prepares these dishes to sell to the various factory workers near her house. The sale of empanadas and sweets provides her with a daily income that is very important as it helps with her family's household expenses, especially food and education.

Señora Gladis, as well as all of her friends in the group, are requesting a loan to invest in her business. She wants to buy ingredients like chicken and beef, corn, condiments and oil for her empanadas and sweets like candy, cookies, caramels, alfajores (filled cookies) and other things.

In this group: Gladis Rosa, Valentina, Gloria, María, Gricelda, María Paola, Zonia, Fermina, María Líz, Gladys, Zunilda, Olga, Bibian*, Luz*, Nelly*
