Kuña Kayupyry Group's story

The communal bank Kuña Katupyry is in its first loan cycle. It is participating in the poverty reduction survey, where the women, who are now living below the poverty line, are trying to get ahead through workshops and weekly visits. They are about to reach poverty level two.

Sonia, a member, was at poverty level one in the last survey. She sells prepared foods, traditional soups and breads, and clothing. She is hardworking and wants to succeed. She is applying for a loan to buy ingredients such as sweet corn, salt, cheese, eggs, and oil to prepare her dishes, which will help her firm up her business plan and increase her earnings.
