A loan of $3,050 helped a member to buy a freezer and expand her business.

Kuña Rory Group's story

Mrs Francisca A. set up this committee. Francisca lives in Calitxo, in the city of Carapegua. The committee is called “Kuña Rory” and it is currently entering its tenth loan cycle with 16 members. This is a group of very responsible and hard-working women.

Some of these ladies already had work before they became members of the committee of enterprising women and joined in order to improve their businesses. Others, however, are starting out in their first business.

These women are grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for this initiative since it has helped them to develop their capacity for work.

Dionicia has been selling milk for several years. She gets up very early to milk her cow and then goes out to sell the milk. She makes her sales in the city of Carapegua where she also has a vegetable stall.

Dionicia is especially grateful to Fundación Paraguaya because, through the support they have given her, she has been able to acquire more capital. She hopes to be able to continue relying on their financial support to expand her business because she now has more merchandise. She also hopes to be able to acquire a freezer.

In this group: Gloria, Gilda, Francisca, Rosa, Maria Candida, Dionicia, Regina, Gladys, Nancy, Felipa, Bella, Lucila, Sonia, Maria Elena, Juana*, Julia*
