Kuña Aty Group's story

The group named Kuña Aty is in its first cycle of the women's committee program. They are indigenous women; they all work and help each other to get ahead. They are doing the elimination of poverty survey, as the 17 members are below the poverty line.

One of the members is Aidé, who in her first survey demonstrated a level of poverty within level one. Through her effort and continual work she is improving her economic situation, but she is likewise aware that this work she is doing and effort she is making should be constant.

Aidé asks for this loan to buy lingerie and used clothing, which will help her to materialize her business plan. This will in turn help her to improve her earnings.

In this group: Aidé, Celina, Elida, Jorgelina, Jasukaretea, Eunice, Ladislaa, Arsenia, Margarita, Andrea, Perfecta, Joaquina, Estela, Liliana, Lichi, Jerapoty*, María*
