A loan helped a member to buy aluminum, cardboard, plastic and other products to sell.


Kuña Mbarete Group's story

There are 17 women in this group who want to grow and get ahead in life. This is a new group made up of female members who are also heads of their families and do everything they can for their loved ones in order to give them a better quality of life.

One of the members is Grisel. She is hardworking and tells us she runs a business collecting, buying and selling recyclable materials. She collects recyclables even though her business is modest, but she considers it to be honorable as this work enables her to help her family.

She's grateful for the opportunity to continue working so she can continue helping her family.

She's requesting a loan to buy aluminum, cardboard, plastic and other products to sell.
