Kuña Guapa Group's story

In forming this group, the main contact was Maria Dávalos, who lives in the Barrio San Miguel neighborhood of Ciudad del Este. She contacted her neighbors and friends to form the communal bank in her community.

The communal bank is called Kuña Guapa. There are 20 members, and they are in their tenth cycle. The group stands out in the neighborhood for being united, supportive, and responsible with each other.

Maria sells clothes in an itinerant manner. She goes to different locations in the country to sell her clothes. In addition to selling clothes, she sells athletic shoes and sheets. Sometimes she sells her merchandise on credit, and later she goes to collect. She says that this activity is very demanding, but it helps her family, especially with the daily food.

She is requesting a loan to buy clothes like t-shirts, shirts, sweaters, pants, sweatshirts, and others.

She is grateful to the Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva for the financial help.
