Kuña Guapa Group's story

The group called “Kuña Guapa” is in its third loan cycle. The members have taken a poverty elimination survey that indicated that eight of them are below the poverty line. In other words, their incomes are very low but they are working and striving to improve.

One of the members is Sra. Maria. She generates sales from her modest store so that she can help her family. Maria says that she started with a few customers, but thanks to her good service, she eventually improved as time passed. She is a hardworking person who in time has been known for earning her own space. Today she is requesting a loan so that she can invest in the purchase of supplies for her store such as food products, beverages, and other items. This will enable her to keep her business well-stocked.

In this group: Maria, Limpia, Nicolasa, Maria, Dionicia, Analicia, Laudelina, Benigna, Norma, Andrea, Karina, Teresa, Alicia*
