Kuña Guapa Group's story

Mrs. Silvina A. owns a small grocery store that receives several customers every day. She therefore decided to set up a small group of women entrepreneurs among the neighbors on her block. She invited the most responsible ones who were willing to work hard to get ahead in their daily jobs. There are 18 of them who have independent jobs and who will receive a proportion of the loan depending on how long they have been involved in the group.

These members depend largely on the credit support given them by the Paraguaya Foundation which has helped them greatly to establish their individual businesses.

Mrs. Silvina plans to use the loan to stock her grocery store.
