Kuña Guapa Group's story

The “Kuña Guapa” committee is from the city of Ypané and is currently in its third cycle. With the loans they are able to invest in their grocery stores, in their various other sales businesses, in new and used clothes sales and in providing sewing services.

In the Rosado Guazu Compañia nearly 89% of the population works growing fruit and vegetables (eggplant, lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, onions, cabbage, oranges, mandarins, melons and watermelons, among others). The growth their business have had has helped them to gradually increase their commercial activities to improve their quality of life. For example, some of the women were able to use part of their profits to make physical improvements to their homes and their respective businesses.

Mirna is one of the group members. She sells fruit and vegetables. She generates income this way for her family and contributes to their basic needs. She wants to have a better-stocked business to offer her customers more variety of fruit and vegetables. She’s asking for the loan to buy fruit and vegetables to resell.
