Koe Pyahu Group's story

The group named Koe Pyahu, which means 'new dawn', is in its second cycle of the women's committee program. They are women who work, and they all help each other to get ahead. They are doing the elimination of poverty survey, and some of the women have very low incomes.

Mirian is the president of the committee and says that she has a well-stocked grocery store, where the majority of her neighbors buy from her. She has been able to set up her business with a lot of effort and sacrifice, and her desire is to be able to keep growing and have a well-stocked store with all types of products in the future.

She asks for this loan to invest in buying drinks, meat, fruit and other supplies to be able to keep investing in her store. She is thankful for this opportunity, as it will be a lot of help to her.

In this group: Mirian, Eliza, Sonia, Wilma, Doriña, Sulma, Claudia, Silvia, Mirtha, Nilda, Claudia, Nercia, Nilsa*
