Kuña Porä Group's story

The group is in its fourth cycle with the Committee of Women Entrepreneurs Program. There are 15 members, and they are all from the Las Garzas neighborhood in the city of San Antonio – Villa Elisa.

The group demonstrates excellent morals about their payments. They make use of good savings, and they also engage in various activities for their petty cash. They are united and respectful of each other. They make all of their decisions in a democratic way, using the voting system for whatever decision they make.

Claudelina B., the president, stands out for her leadership ability. She encourages her colleagues to continue putting forth great effort in order to get ahead. They really value the opportunity that the Fundación continues to give them, and they all have their own small businesses.

She sells clothes, and thanks to previous Kiva loans to this communal bank, she has been expanding her business. Now she is requesting a new loan to be able to buy coats, pants, t-shirts, sweatshirts, and other winter garments. That way she will continue getting good results from her sales.

In this group: Claudelina , Elena Madelin, Sofía, María Justa , Agustina, Felipa, Jacinta, Olga Marisa, Carolina, Carmen, Etelvina, Guillermina, Sandra Paola, Eva, Rosalina
