Kuña Mbarete Group's story

The Kuña Mbarete communal bank is in the city of Itá. It is comprised of 12 women from the city of Itá. The group is currently in its third cycle. They all have the goal of working together and through this work helping their families. Their goal is to give their families a future without the hardships that they had to experience.

Mrian is the president of the group. She says that she has been a hairdresser for some time. She has very good clientele, thanks to the fact that she always does a very good job. That is why her customers always return.

She is requesting the loan to buy combs, spray, shampoo, rinses, dyes, and other supplies that she uses in her business. Those are the ones that she uses the most day to day.
