A loan helped a member to buy fabric, paint, thread, glue, and other items.


Kuña Katupyry Group's story

In this group, 16 women got together and work together. It was formed by friends and neighbors in the city of Encarnación. All of them are very self-sacrificing, but among them, Juana deserves mention. She is an artisan and has worked in her craft for several years.

Juana says that, although her work is humble, it has permitted her to help with household income. In this way, she has been able to give her loved ones everything that she could not have.

Her plan is to invest in her work and to continue improving. She wants to buy various supplies to make her handicrafts, such as fabric, paint, thread, glue, etc.

Note: Although there is only one person in the photo, this is a group loan. It was not possible to take a group photo, to avoid gathering people during the Covid-19 pandemic.

In this group: Yolanda Marilin, Juana, Tomasa, Silda, Zunilda Maria Isabel, Melchora Ester, Sandra Mabel, Andrea Mabel, Eliza, Gloria Esther, Mirta Gladys, Teresa Maribel, Luciana, Elena Esther, Laura Andrea, Ignacia Clotilde
