Kuña Mbarete Group's story

The group called Kuña Mbarete has that name that means strong women, since that is what they are. They are in their cycle number 3 of the women's committee program, where they all work and help each other to get ahead. They are also in the poverty elimination program in order to offer a better quality of life to their families.

Ilda is one of them. She is a member of this group with the purpose of being able to improve herself and offer a better quality of life to her loved ones.

She has a modest business which consists of a grocery store, in which she and her husband, daughter and granddaughters work every day from early on.

Her goal is to be able to continue working and later to be able to expand her business in order to offer a greater variety of products to her customers.

She asks for this loan to buy products such as sugar, noodles, cookies, juice, meat and chicken among others.
