Kuña Pyapy Mbarete Group's story

The group "Kuña Pyapy Mbarete" is in its second loan cycle of the Women's Committee Program where everyone has committed themselves to working and to helping each other to get ahead. They also make up part of the poverty elimination program where each one of them is completing a poverty elimination survey in order to determine everyone's situation and, along with the training sessions, continue to improve their living conditions accordingly. Herminia is part of this group and makes a living as a seamstress with which she helps her family. She is a very entrepreneurial woman who has been helping her family and loved ones through her effort and sacrifice. Thanks to her persistence she is improving her life little by little and wants to keep working. It is for this reason that she is asking for this loan, to be able to purchase fabrics, thread, elastic etc., and thus continue with the work she has been doing. She is grateful for the opportunity she is receiving and that it will be very helpful for her.

In this group: Lorena, Ana, Hilda, Elva, Preseveranda, Liliana, Catalina, Graciela, Idalina, Gladys, Maria, Jacinta, Herminia, Valentina, Marcelina, Elva, Dionisia
