Kuña Guapa Group's story

This communal bank was formed by the members of another group that had worked previously with the foundation. The group currently is in its second loan cycle in Fundación Paraguaya's program for women entrepreneurs, and they want to be able to go all the way to the highest level of the program.

Cynthia is a member of the bank. She is 21 years old and single, and has two daughters. She works selling food in her home and she tells us that it is going very well for her because her neighbors come to her to be able to buy the food she prepares. She says that everything she does is to give her daughters a future of dignity, since she is alone.

She is requesting the loan to buy shells for "empanadas" [small pies] , mayonnaise, vegetables, etc., which are the essential ingredients for the food she sells.

In this group: Cynthia Veronica, Antonia, Eva, Rossana, Flora, Cynthia, Lidia, Angelina, Liliana, Eduvijis, Evangelista, Maria*
