Kuña Mbarete Group's story

The women´s group “Kuña Mbarete” is in its fifth cycle and all its members are committed to working hard and helping each other to get on in life. They are taking the poverty elimination survey in order to improve the quality of life of each member.

Nimia recycles a wide range of products such as boxes, aluminum, paper and plastic, which she collects and then sells wholesale. She does this job with a lot of sacrifice but it helps her to support her family. She is very proud of the work that she does because it is a dignified and above all an honest job.

She is asking for this loan to invest in recycled materials, such as plastic, aluminum and other things. She buys them and later sells them wholesale to increase her income. She is grateful for the help that she is receiving.
