A loan helped a member to buy groceries, drinks, sweets, and other additional products.


Kuña Mbarete Group's story

There are 15 women who make up this committee, with the goal of being able to offer better living conditions to their loved ones. Additionally, they are in the poverty elimination program.

From among them, it is appropriate to mention Ada, who is married and says that she and her husband help each other to offer their family a better quality of life. She has a modest snack bar where she works every day starting early in the morning, and she comments that, thanks to her business, she has been able to cover the daily needs of her family and give them everything she wasn't able to have.

She is requesting this loan for the purchase of products for her snack bar, such as groceries, drinks, sweets, and other additional products in order to continue with her sales.
