A loan of $2,350 helped a member to buy fabric softener, detergent and fabric freshener.

Kuña Guapa Joaju Group's story

The Kuña Guapa Joaju committee was formed by the initiative of one of its members. They are presently in their first loan cycle, with fourteen (14) members. They will all work and help each other to get ahead. They are involved in the poverty elimination survey and four of them are below the poverty line, but they are working to be able to continue improving.

One of the members is Señora Hayde. She is a very selfless person who works washing laundry for people in her neighbourhood. She reports that her work is very hard, but that she is proud of what she does because it is worthy and decent work which allows her to help her family. She is seeking this loan in order to invest it in the purchase of fabric softener, detergent and fabric freshener, in order to continue to work as she has been.

They are grateful for the help that they are all receiving.
