The Kuña Guapa Committee is an excellent committee started on March 17, 2009 by 18 women from the city of Itá. This group was formed thanks to Senora Gloria G., who had previously worked with a group, and who gathered her neighbors and friends from the San Antonio neighborhood in order to work with the Program Committee of Entrepreneurial Women. Now they are in their fourth cycle with this program, and they are all very happy because thanks to working together and to the solidarity within the group, they have been able to get ahead and to keep adding to their working capital day by day. The majority of the members started with loans granted by the Fundación Paraguaya. The members of this group will use their loans for different activities such as: sale of food preparation ingredients, purchase of sewing supplies, purchase of stock for sale (sugar, rice, yerba, breads, milk products, meats, etc.), work in manicures and pedicures, sale of silver jewelry, sale of lingerie, sale of clothing, sale of beverages, sewing clothing, etc. This is a very active group, all the members show commitment solidarity, attend the weekly meetings, and engage in activities that generate funds for the good of the whole group. This is one of the best groups currently working with the Program, since the majority of the group members have engaged in the same business since the first loan, thus demonstrating their solidarity and communality. One of the members is Senora Nancy, who with her family creates fine silver jewelry, she, her children and her husband all working together. They also have a small shop where they display their work and they have very good sales that are enabling the family to get ahead. Like Senora Nancy's family, all the members of the group have managed to get ahead graciously.
