Kuña Pyapy Mbarete Group's story

This communal bank is called “Kuña Pyapy Mbarete”, as the women who belong to it are hard-working and determined. It is made up of 17 very active and supportive women who are all neighbors. Currently they are in the first cycle of the Fundación Paraguay program, and their goal is to reach the highest level.

Araceli is one of these woman. She is a modest person, but above all, very hard-working. She sells various brands of cosmetics, and it is going very well, as thanks to the quality of her products, and her good prices, she already has a well-established clientele.

Her goal is to have a store where she can offer more products to sell to her customers. She is asking for help from the Foundation and from Kiva to buy cosmetics, so she will be able to have more variety to offer her customers.
