Kuña Mbarete Group's story

This is a new committee made up of women who are heads of their households and who fight for their loved ones in order to give them what they were unable to have and to avoid living in need. They are also part of the program for the elimination of poverty.

Sirley is one of them. She works selling clothing and shoes of all kinds. She comments that things have been going well thanks to her work and that she has been able to help her family cover their daily needs.

Sirley describes herself as a hard-working person who fights every day for a better quality of life and looks for the way to continue growing and overcome, and with that to continue helping her loved ones.

She is asking for a loan in order to buy various products, such as clothing and shoes of various kinds in order to continue with her sales. In this way she can meet the needs of her customers.
