Kuña Guapa Group's story

This committee is composed of women from the city of Paraguarí. All of them initially received information so that they could learn about the program offered by Fundación Paraguaya. They verified that this would be a very good opportunity, so they decided to come together to form a committee.

This committee is named “Kuña Guapa” since it is composed of active and enterprising women. They commit to staying together and working with the understanding that all members deserve mutual respect. They are currently starting their third loan cycle with an excellent rating. The group consists of 15 women, all of whom work hard to improve their standard of living and that of their families.

Sra. Juana is an artisan who has been making crafts from a young age. She learned this trade from her mother. Through her work, she is able to support herself as well as her family. Juana is requesting a loan to buy thread, a set of needles, and other materials for making her crafts. With this loan, she will be able to complete her outstanding orders.

In this group: Porfiria*, Victoria*, Midia*, Isabel, Edith, Rosa, Juana, María, María, Leidy, Eustaquia, María, Florencia, Claudia, Gabriela
