Nuevas Emprendedoras Group's story

Nuevas Emprendedoras is in its first cycle, where all of them are going to work and help each other to move forward. They are doing the poverty elimination survey, which is a measure that helps the group to know how each of them and their families are doing economically. Most of the group is at an intermediate level, which means, their income levels aren't really low, but neither are they very high.
Elisa, who in her last survey was at poverty level 2, says that she works selling sheets, pillowcases, slipcovers, office shirts, and all kinds of garments that she skillfully sews herself. She says that thanks to the good quality of the garments she makes, she is growing and moving forward and she has gained many good customers. She is asking for this loan to buy fabric to make more of the products that she sells, which will help her to firm up her business plan, which will help her earn more income.

In this group: Hilda, Elisa, Gilda, Eligia, Lidia, Bacilicia, Aida, Nidia, Rossana, Elva, Maria*, Maria*
