A loan of $4,825 helped a member to buy supplies to make chips.

Kuña Aty Group's story

The women of this committee are from the San Francisco neighborhood in the city of Caacupé.

They are very hardworking and self-sacrificing women, and thanks to their Fundación loans they can grow their businesses and help support their families.

They are very grateful for the trust and support they get because it enables them to make life better for themselves and their families.

The committee has been working with Fundación for four years and has completed its sixteenth loan cycle. One of its members, María, earns her living making and selling chips. She cooks them in her house in ovens she heats with wood she buys from others.

She works every day with help from her family, and she's got vendors to sell her product, too. She says the chip sales help her out quite a bit and are practically the only source of income her family has. She is seeking a loan to buy supplies like firewood, starch, cheese, oil, etc.
