Kuña Aty Takuru Group's story

The Kuña Aty Takuru Committee was started in the Takuru neighborhood of the city of Caaguazu. It is made up of 20 local neighborhood women who work daily to manage the family affairs. They are currently in their first loan cycle.

Maria Estela is a member of this group. She sells vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers, onions, cucumbers, etc. She sells her goods in the street, and she is able to make her living this way. Day by day she fights and with all her effort she is getting ahead. Now with this group program and with the assistance of Kiva she wants to invest in her business to continue growing little by little and to be able to support her family. She dreams of being a leading micro-entrepreneur. She is requesting this loan in order to purchase a variety of vegetables, which will allow her to restock and continue making sales, thereby bringing in income to meet the costs of her household.

In this group: Zulma Concepción, Lilian Aide, Ydalina Concepción, Rosana, Laura Isabel, Flavia, Mirian Raquel, Teodolina, Sonia Elizabeth, Liliana, Atanaci, Marina, Luisa, Hilda , Sonia Elizabeth, Arsenia, Fermina, Maria Estela, Ediberta, Liz Marlene*
