Kuña Pora Group's story

Kuña Pora is starting to work on their first cycle, and every member is doing her best to learn and complete trainings in order to improve. They are all completing the poverty elimination survey as a means to know the situation of each member.

Maria is one of its members. Her last survey showed her at a level three poverty level, which indicates good income, but she is aware that she needs to keep working to maintain it. Some of the work she does is making sheets, pants, pillow cases, etc. She is a very self-sacrificing person, who works to help her family and takes care of their daily needs.

Maria is requesting this loan to purchase knit fabrics, which will help her define and implement her business plan, which in turn will help her improve her income.
