Kuña Katupyry Group's story

This group of Entrepreneurial Women is called 'Kuña Katupyry'. The group has 12 members who are currently in their first loan cycle within the program. This is a group of very active and honest women who work hard in order to make progress and help their families.

Marciana is 25 years old. She tells us that she sells blankets and hammocks that are made by her husband. She sells her products around Carapeguá and in other cities, working as an itinerant street vendor. She is a person who has a great desire to do well in life and continue growing as a micro-businesswoman. Her goal is to be able to continue helping her family by providing them with everything they need.

Marciana is requesting a loan to buy blankets and hammocks. This will enable her to complement the products she already has and have a good stock available. Marciana is grateful to Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva for the help that she and her group are receiving.
