Kuña Guapa Group's story

There are 17 members in this group in the city of Asunción. Thanks to everybody's work to move forward in life, the group is now on its nineteenth cycle. They are currently undergoing the poverty elimination survey in order to establish how much each person has as an income.

One of the group's members is Cecilia who, thanks to her work, has been able to improve her financial situation vastly and thus help her family. One way she makes a living is selling different types of foods. This is going very well for her as her dishes are delicious and sought after by her customers. Cecilia's goal is to continue working and helping her family as she has been doing, as well as to improve her financial situation.

Cecilia is applying for this loan to buy the ingredients to prepare her dishes, such as meat, vegetables, condiments, eggs, flour and more. This will help her to realise her business plan and thus improve her income.

In this group: Juliana, Nidia, Maria, Ursula, Amada, Benancia, Mirian, Romina, Irmina, Cecilia, Nora, Gladys, Evangelina, María, Evangelista, Gladys*, Ester*
