Kuña Pora Group's story

Kuña Pora Group came together thanks to one of its members, who contacted her neighbors and friends to form a communal bank in their area. They are now in their eighth cycle and have 11 members. They are a group known in their neighborhood for their unity, solidarity, and responsibility. They all hope that they can get ahead and support one another through their work together.

Myriam is a very hard-working and spirited woman who struggles day in and day out for her family. She says that for some time now she has been selling beverages, and that thanks to her good prices and variety she has been able to develop a good client base. She says that all of her efforts are to help her family and to make their lives better. She is requesting this loan to buy beer, wine, soft drinks, ciders, and other types of drinks, so that she can stock up for her customers during the high selling period of Christmas and New Years.
