Kuña Guapa Del Barrio La Mil Vivienda Group's story

The committee named “Kuña Guapa del Barrio Mil Vivienda” is from the city of San Ignacio. This group consists of 11 women whose goal is for each one of them to be able to work. By promoting the entrepreneurial spirit, they will be able to develop as individuals and as workers.

Mirna is one of the members. She is a hardworking and self-sacrificing woman. Mirna says that she begins her work every day in the early morning hours, preparing fresh food that she will sell later in the day. She says that her meals have earned a good reputation in her neighborhood and in the surrounding areas. As a result, she has gained more customers.

Mirna always wants to be stocked with what she needs for preparing meals. Therefore, she is requesting a loan to buy meats, sausages, vegetables, baked goods, and other items that are essential to her.

In this group: Liliana, Graciela, Venancia, Gladys, Ignacia, Carmen, Bonifacia, Norma, Mirna, Natividad, Carolina
