Kuña Pyapy Mbarete Group's story

Guillermina D., who lives in the 5 ½ km Monday area in the Ciudad de Este, contacted her neighbors and friends to form a committee in their area.
The group is named “Kuña Pyapy Mbarete” and includes 19 very active and supportive women who are all from the same area.
They are all involved in different business activities. Some will set out to start new businesses after they obtain the loan. All of them have a steady income, so they will be able to make the payments on time.
Guillermina sells vegetables and root vegetables and in particular, cassava. She has worked in this field for several years and has made some progress due to her efforts and constant perseverance.
