Kuña Guapa Group's story

The group was formed with the members from another group, as they decided to work together, and through that work be able to move forward, and help one another. The communal bank is in the second loan cycle under the program. All of them are working in an environment of help and cooperation.

Carmen is a member of the communal bank. She is 33 years old, and married to José. They have five children. Carmen sells cakes from her home. She says that by means of her work, and thanks to the good sales she has, she is able to help her husband with the household expenses, and that way make these easier to bear. She wants her children to be good people, and have a profession.

She is applying for the loan to buy flour, eggs, lard, etc. With these, she will be able to continue making the cakes that she sells.
