Kuña Guapa Group's story

The Kuña Guapa committee was formed when several neighbors from 8000 Defensores neighborhood, in the city of San Estanislao (better known as Santani), came together as a group.

This committee is entering its ninth loan cycle with 13 members. The group is noted in the neighborhood for being very united, supportive and responsible. The members have a great, entrepreneurial spirit since they are responsible and try hard to reach all their goals. By acquiring this loan, they see many doors opening to them which will enable them to make progress in their business undertakings.

Maria Josefina is a very self-sacrificing woman who leads both the group and her family. She supports her household and would like to pull herself and her family out of the poverty in which they find themselves. For this reason, she works raising animals. In her city, this is a business that allows people to make good income. It is a primary business activity.

Maria Josefina would like to gain the help of Kiva lenders, through the loan that she is requesting, so that she can buy balanced feed and also vaccines for the animals that she raises and then sells.

In this group: Maria Josefina, Cristina, Desideria, Aureliana, Catalina, Adela, Juliana, Eugenia, Ermelinda, Juana, Alicia, Leonarda*, Ana*
