Kuña Katupyry Potrero Group's story

The Kuña Katupyry Potrero women's committee are on their second loan cycle within Fundación Paraguaya's entrepreneurial women's program. They are very hard-working women who have a great desire to do well and help their families.

Geronima is the committee's president. Her business is selling vegetables and she tells us that, through her work and with the help of her group, she has been able to improve her income a little. Her dreams are to have a large store, continue growing her business and become a great micro-businesswoman. She is requesting this loan to buy tomatoes, peppers, onions, cucumbers and other vegetables. This will enable her to continue working and improving her income. She will also be able to continue working towards her dream.
