Kuña Guapa Group's story

The Kuña Guapa group is in their 10th loan cycle with the organization. In a poverty elimination survey, two of these women showed that they are below the poverty line. These women are heads of their families who struggle to get ahead.

Antonia is in level two and has a business selling charcoal. She says that thanks to this work she is succeeding and helping her family with everything she can. Antonia is very hardworking and enterprising. She has a goal of growing as a small business owner and growing her business.

She is requesting this loan to purchase wood to convert into charcoal since she wants to continue with her work and not run out of her main product.

In this group: Silvina, Blasia, Virginia, Nativiadad, Lidia, Maria, Gloria, Rosa, Maria, Maria, Ramona, Gasparina, Maria, Antonia, Maria, Elsa*
