Kuña Pora Group's story

This committee is called “Kuña Pora”. There are 11 members in this group and they are currently in their seventh loan cycle. This is a group which is noted in their neighborhood for being very united, supportive and responsible. Every member of the group carries out their business activities responsibly and supportively. They all have a great entrepreneurial spirit. They are up to date with their repayments and plan to finish this stage having fulfilled their responsibilities to the institution admirably.

Carmen has a grocery store and, through her work, she is able to provide her family with the resources they need to lead a decent and respectable life. She considers herself to be a very responsible and, above all, a very hard-working woman.

Carmen is requesting this loan to buy more merchandise such as food, canned goods, etc. so that she can stock her business. She trusts that, through this loan, she will be able to attract more customers and thereby increase her profit margin a little.

In this group: Teófila , Ofelia , Liduvina , Myriam , Carmen , Hilda , Juliana , Gricelda , Nilda , Natividad , María
