Kuña Mbarete Group's story

A group of women in the city of Ita has formed a group called Kuña Mbarete. They are very industrious and hard-working women, who day after day make the effort to be able to give a better life to their families. The group now consists of 16 women who are in their third loan cycle in Foundation Paraguay's program for entrepreneurial women. Mirian is one of the members. She tells us that her beauty salon is the sustenance of her family. It is well equipped with every type of article. She comments that thanks to the friendliness with which she tends to her customers and thanks to the good quality of her work, she has been able to see her business growing little by little. Her goal is to continue growing and helping her family. Mirian is applying for a loan to stock her business with dyes, gel, hair spray, shampoo, rinses, and other supplies necessary for her work.
