Kuña Aty Joaju Group's story

The communal bank called "Kuña Aty Joaju" is in its first lending cycle with the Foundation. They all work and put in a lot of effort. They are very excited about working and learning a lot together. They are doing the elimination survey and want to be able to improve all the members' finances. One of the members of the communal bank is Sra. Agustina. She makes her living raising, selling and also slaughtering pigs. She says that it is very hard work, as she always has to be on top of her animals' care and make sure they have everything they need. But in spite of that, she always works hard and does her job with a lot of love. Sra. Agustina is requesting this loan in order to purchase pigs to slaughter and to sell, which will help her to firm up her business plan and improve her income.
