Kuña Aty Group's story

The Fundación Paraguaya's Comité de Mujeres Rurales [Rural Women's Communal Bank] program has formed various groups in the city of Curuguaty. The communal bank "Kuña Aty" is a member group located in Barrio Santa Maria, composed of 15 women who are neighbors, friends, and sisters. They are currently on the second loan cycle. Their communal bank shows a lot of interest with all the programs offered by the Foundation.

Eloina (one of the members) is a very hardworking woman who sells vegetables. This has allowed her to move forward with her family and help with the daily house expenses. She knows how difficult it is to maintain her house, so she puts a lot of effort into it on a daily basis. Her sales are going well, since her neighbors always buy from her.

The loan requested to KIVA and the Fundacion Paraguaya will be used to buy vegetables, like tomatoes, chilies, onions, potatoes, legumes and other type of vegetables. This will help her to stock her store and continue offering vegetables to her customers.

In this group: Lucila , Rosa , Ermelinda , Eloina , Sergia , Perla , Patricia , Dilma , Geremia , Nélida , Leonarda , Rosa , Flavia , Dolly , Vilma
