Kuña Joaju Group's story

The Kuña Joaju committee has a total of 10 members. All of them are very hardworking and enterprising women with few resources. They started the group among neighbors and friends, and now they are in their third cycle. Irene is one of the members. She raises animals such as chickens and pigs. She remarks that her work is very hard, since it requires a lot of physical and mental effort. She has to be on call 24 hours a day so nothing will happen to her animals. Her goal is to keep working and thus keep being able to help her family. She is asking for the loan to buy small pigs and feed for them and the other animals she has. She is grateful to the Foundation and to Kiva for the opportunity she is receiving, as many of them wouldn't have received these opportunities in other institutions.

In this group: Irene, Panfila , Lorenza , Paublina , Fatima , Nancy , Isabel , Justa , Isabelina , Maria *
