Kuña Guapa Group's story

The communal bank "Kuña Guapa" got together at the initiative of one of its members. The group, comprised of 13 members, is currently in its fourth loan cycle and is located 21 kms from Curugaty, where all the members work and help each other get ahead. They are taking the poverty elimination survey and four of the members are below the poverty line.

One of the members is Blanca who has a general store and sells all kinds of products. She is a very hard-working, enterprising woman and says business is going very well because she has a high sales volume. Blanca wants to continue working so she can help her family and give them all the things she never had.

She is requesting a loan to buy sweets, beverages, juices, food and other supplies to stock her store. This is so she can continue earning an income to help her family.

In this group: Bernarda, Cristina, Diosnela, Blanca, Carmen, Andrea, Ignacia, Mercedes, María, Diana, Catalina, Blanca, Liliana*
