Kuña Katupyry Group's story

The “Kuña Katupyry” group was formed after promotional brochures were circulated in the members’ neighborhood. All of the members are from the same area, know each other, and are neighbors. Each of the members has the goal of working together to encourage group solidarity and make the most of their communal bank.

Rufina is the group’s president. She makes a living selling chipas [Paraguayan cheese buns]. Her business has allowed her to help her family and provide them with what they need to improve their living conditions.

Rufina is asking for a loan to purchase corn flour, cheese, eggs, and the other ingredients she needs so she can continue making and selling chipas. This will make it possible for her to generate the income she needs to help her family.

In this group: Rufina, Norma, Julia, Dianora, Maria, Etelvina, Mariana, Alba, Dianora, Jorgelina, Marisol, Maria, Magnolia, Matilde, Miguela, Ana, Eustaquia, Francisca, Gertudis
