Kuña Guapa Group's story

The committee "Kuña Guapa" is in the twelfth cycle of the women's program. The group has 16 members, from the Asunción zone. All of the members work on behalf of their children because they want to give them all that they could not have. One of these selfless women is Gladys, who works in recycling of all types of products, including plastics, cartons, aluminum, metals, and the rest. Gladys collects all of these materials, going from one place to the other. She herself commented that she is very proud of what she does because it is a respectable and honest job, and she does not have shame about it. She is requesting this loan for the purchase of plastics and cartons, which she will be able to resell, and in this way have increased income. The group members are grateful for the help that they are receiving.

In this group: Juliana, Nidia, Maria, Ursula, Amada, Benancia, Mirian, Romina*, Irmina, Cecilia, Nora, Gladys, Evangelina, María, Evangelista, Gladys
