Kuña Guapa Group's story

"Kuña guapa" means hard-working woman, and that is what the four women who make up this group are. They are in their third loan cycle, and thanks to the fact that they are helping one another, they are succeeding.

One of the members of the group is Cristina, who sells chipas (a traditional Paraguayan treat made from manioc flour). She says that she travels many kilometers a day to be able to sell her product, and that thanks to this work she gives her family a bit of what they need. She describes herself as a very hard-working person, who has many dreams she wants to fulfill.

She is requesting this loan in order to buy chipas, as that way she will be able to keep selling them and have the earnings to continue helping her family.

In this group: Maria, Dora, Virna, Cristina, Maria, Bruna, Delia, Silvia, Luisa, Ana, Maria, Celia, Blasida, Luz*
