A loan of $3,775 helped a member to purchase ingredients to make cleaning products.


Kuña Guapa Group's story

The group is currently on its tenth loan cycle. Each of the members has their own business but they also have work that brings them together as a group.

One of the members is Mrs. Evangelista Gonzalez. She is 50 years old and she has 2 children who stay at home while she goes out to sell cleaning products in the mornings. She carries the products in a sack that she later fills with empty bottles for recycling. She comes home to have lunch ready and she goes out again afterward to sell the recyclable goods.

She is a much stressed woman, having to go out day after day with a very heavy load. When she comes home from work she has to do housework, doing all of this for the sake of her children. She is a single mother.

She requests a loan to purchase ingredients to be used to make the cleaning products she sells, such as detergents and household air fresheners among other products.
