Kuña Joaju Group's story

Kuña Joaju means union of women, which is what these women have all done. They are in their first loan cycle in the program, learning how to work together to be able to help each other. They have a great hope of growing and helping their families.

Irene is part of this group. With a lot of effort and work, she gives her family what it needs. She works raising and selling animals. She tells us that it is hard work and it is full time, since she has to pay attention to her animals twenty four hours a day and keep watch so they don't lack for anything. She is applying for this loan to buy animals to raise and sell. This way, she will continue her work and get the means to continue helping her family.

In this group: Irene, Paublina, Toribia, Runilda, Justa, Jorgelina, Isabelina, Marta, Isabel, María, Pascuala, Elva, Reginalda, Atalia, Tomasa*, Tatiana*
