Kuña Guapa Group's story

The community bank "Kuña Guapa" is in its fourth loan cycle. The group is comprised of women from the city of Villa Ygatimi, which is in quite a remote area with little access to the outside. They all want their neighborhood to grow and improve day by day. Rumida is the president of this group. She is a very active person, and she formed the group so that she could work with others and make progress. She has a well-stocked shop in which she works every day starting very early in the morning. She strives to offer her customers what they need and to earn the income she needs in order to cover her family's day-to-day expenses. She is seeking this loan so that she can purchase fruit, meat, vegetables, condiments and other items, so that she can continue her sales and give her customers what they are asking for.

In this group: Rumilda, Fatima, Elizabeht, Dionicia, Celida, Marli, Fermina, Antonina, Elsa, Dalia, Mils, Porfiria, Noelia
