Kuña Guapa Group's story

The Kuña Guapa group is already in its eleventh loan cycle and has used the loan money to help them get ahead. They are participating in a special poverty eradication program in which each woman identifies her own particular situation. One of the group members is Sra. Claudia. In the last survey she had a level 3 poverty ranking; in other words, she has an adequate income but has to work hard to maintain it. She buys and sells clothing. Claudia is very keen to make progress in life and for this reason she makes a great effort. With the loan money she plans to buy a variety of clothes to sell such as t-shirts, shirts, pants etc.

In this group: Florinda, Tomasa, Susana, Teofila, Perla, Cecilia, Delia, Virginia, Claudia, Maria, Ramona, Mercedes, Leticia*, Wilma*
