but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase bags of corn in bulk.

Puerto Nuevo Group's story

The committee is from the city of Pilar, made up of female heads of household who sacrifice for their loved ones, to be able to give them a better quality of life.

Among them, Felisa is worth mentioning. She stands out from the others as a very self-sacrificing person who, despite the difficulties, does not give up, and seeks the way to be able to help her family. Despite her difficulty speaking, she seeks the way to be able to improve herself and get ahead.

Felisa is a very active person. With her sister, she works selling corn flour and also, on the weekends, they sell food. With this, she generates the means to be able to help with the household income.

She asks for this loan to purchase bags of corn in bulk, to be able to continue with her sales and satisfy her customers.

She is grateful for the opportunity she is receiving to be able to continue with her work as she has been doing.

Note: There is only one person in the photo, but this is a group loan. A group photo was not possible to prevent the gathering of people due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
