Kuña Mbarete Group's story

The communal bank "Kuña Mbarete" is in its fourth loan cycle through the women's program. It was established on April 11, 2011 through Mirian who used to belong to another group. Now all the members are working together harmoniously to help each other get ahead. Mirian runs a beauty salon and has many good customers. She always provides good service thanks to which business continues to grow. She is a very hard worker who wants to invest in her business so she can expand and offer employment to other people. The loan she is requesting is to buy shampoo, conditioner, hair color, creams and other supplies needed to continue offering a good service. She is grateful for this opportunity which will be very helpful to her.
