Kuña Katupyry Group's story

“Kuña Katupyry” is a group of 18 women from the city of Caaguazú. Their main goal is to improve their lifestyle. They are women of limited resources who want to get ahead. Upon hearing about the program with Fundación Paraguaya, they were delighted with the opportunity being given to them and decided to take action.


Elodia is one of these hardworking women. She has a well-stocked food pantry, which helps her to generate household income. Elodia says that she begins her work very early because she already has customers in the mornings. Her goals include continuing to grow and expanding the size of her business.


She is requesting a loan so that she can stock her food pantry with sugar, flour, eggs, oil, noodles, candy, meat, fruit, vegetables, milk, and other products. By restocking her inventory, she will be able to keep her customers satisfied.
