Kuña Pojoaju Group's story

The group called “Kuña Pojoaju” is in its sixth cycle in the women’s committee. They all are committed to working hard to help each other out so they can all get ahead. They are taking the poverty elimination survey which makes it possible for them to know the situation each one of them is in. Two of the sixteen women are below the poverty line.

One of the members is Elvira whose survey indicated a level one poverty, that is to say, very low income. She works in sales in that she has a small grocery store she works hard at to be able to support her family. She relates that her business is her only source of income and she tries to provide everything her family needs by means of it.

She requests this loan to buy vegetables, fruit, foodstuffs, bulk items and others to invest in her business and continue striving towards an improved economy.

In this group: Lidia, Marciana, Nilda, Petrona, Juana, Maria, Mirna, Sinforiana, Elvira, Gricelda, Benicia, Yessica, Fany, Susy, Jorgina*, Eva*
