A loan of $1,975 helped a member to buy sheets, blankets, etc.

Kuña Guapa Group's story

The 'Kuña Guapa' committee was formed when one of its members found out about the program and invited her neighbors (many of whom are saleswomen) to join the group. The ladies work together and help each other as much as they can so that they can improve their lives.

Mirna is the group's president and she says that she sells all kinds of products, including sheets and blankets, as an itinerant vendor. Mirna says that she is always trying to motivate her friends to remain within the group as it is very helpful. She is requesting this loan to buy sheets, blankets and other products to sell. This will enable her to continue growing as a micro-businesswoman.

In this group: Mirna, Victorina , Laura , Amalia , Clemencia , Fátima , María , María , Francisca , Tomasa , Yluminada , Mirian , Dima
