Kuña Guapa Aty Group's story

This is a group formed by female heads of households who fight for their loved ones, to be able to offer them a better quality of life, and to make sure their needs are met. They are from the city of Curuguaty, a fragile area due to the presence of armed groups.

One of the group members is Zunilda, a hardworking and entrepreneurial woman who mentions that she started with very little and thanks to her constant effort and struggle, has been able to overcome obstacles and get ahead. She describes herself as hardworking and a fighter, looking for the means to be able to continue helping her family and to give them what they couldn't otherwise have.

Zunilda wants to purchase drinks, bread, fruit, vegetables, meat and other products to be able to continue with her work and meet the demand of her customers.
