A loan of $2,800 helped a member to buy charcoal to sell.


Kuña Guapa Group's story

The committee named "Kuña Guapa" consists of 17 women, all of whom are friends and neighbors from the city of Asunción. All of these committee members strive day after day to provide for the welfare of their families so that they can have a better future and a life that is different from what they experienced.


Guillermina is a member of this group. She says that she sells charcoal and has done very well in this business. Lately she has bought a lot of charcoal since the price of gas is very high. Her goal is to continue growing so that she can provide what her family needs. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy charcoal so that she will have enough product in stock and avoid being depleted. She is grateful for the opportunity she has received from Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva.
