Kuña Guapa Group's story

The communal bank "Kuña Guapa" is in its sixth loan cycle. The members are taking the poverty elimination survey in order to know where they stand with their incomes. Three of them are at a very low level.

One of the members is Claudelina, who registered an income well below the poverty line on the last survey. She works as a seamstress and says business is now going very well. She has a good clientele and always receives many orders. She is a hard-working, enterprising person who works hard to improve her lifestyle and development.

She is requesting a loan to buy fabric, thread, elastic, buttons and other supplies to continue with her sewing business and satisfy customers.
