La Nueva Familia Group's story

The "La Nueva Familia" committee was formed in San Ignacio city. They are friends and neighbors who fight to succeed and grow, as they support their loved ones and seek a way to be successful.

Lorenza is one of the members. She works selling vegetables. She states that her work is very demanding and even thought it is hard, she does it to be able to help her family and improve their quality of life. She describes herself as an enterprising person who is not afraid of challenges and seeks a way to succeed and grow.

She asks for a loan in order to be able to buy fresh vegetables to sell, and in this way be able to meet the demands of her customers and continue with her work. She is thankful for the opportunity she receives as it will be a great help.
