Kuña Guapa Group's story

Kuña Guapa is the name of this group. They are 19 women, head of their households, who meet with the hope of being able to help their families by working together. In this way each one of them will grow in their enterprises.

Elisa is the member that formed the group. She is 51 years old, and she is a very active person who works for her family, the group, and her community. She does party supplies and general tailoring. Through this work she gives her loved ones everything that she was not able to have.

Her goal is to be able to have a large seamstress shop where she will be able to take in more orders and also give work to other people.

She is requesting this loan because she wants to buy fabric and thread in order to continue with her sewing. She has orders that she wants to complete.

She is grateful for the opportunity that she is receiving, which will allow her to grow.
