Kuña Joaju Group's story

The “Kuña Joaju” group is from the city of Curuguaty and is starting work and attending training because they are in cycle #1. All of them come from a very distant zone that’s poorly communicated. They all struggle to move their families forward and also to help their community so that it can gradually grow.

Celiza, one of the members, sells natural remedies for ‘tereré’ [an herbal tea similar to mate]. It is very demanding work because she must wander through the streets but she’s aware that with her effort she’ll be able to help her family and also contribute a little to her community.

She’s requesting this loan to buy natural remedies to continue with her sales and earning income for her family. Celiza dreams with her neighborhood’s growing and improving; that it’s safer and that there is more education.

In this group: Dalila, Juana, Pablina, Serafina, Iluminada, Mari, Asunciona, Virginia, Primitiva, Clotilde, Gladis, Margarita*, Marciana*, Felina*, Celiza
