Nueva Esperanza Group's story

The group called Nueva Esperanza is in its loan cycle number 6 with the women's committee program, where they all work and help each other to get ahead.

One of the members is Monica, who works in sales. She has a modest store in her house and, through her work, she generates the means to be able to offer her loved ones a decent quality of life.

She says that she joined the committee to be able to get training and improve herself and, through her work, generate the means to be able to get her loved ones ahead.

She asks for this loan to be able to purchase a variety of products to sell in her store, such as beverages, baked goods, fruit, meat, and other products to be able to continue with her sales as she has been doing.
