A loan helped a member to buy construction materials.


La Nueva Group's story

Raul Antonio is 38 years old. He lives with his wife and young children and does not have any family members abroad. He works in a metal structure workshop, a trade which he carries out well. It allows him to make an income to help with the household responsibilities. However, his income is not enough to be able to invest in his home.

This is why he is applying for a loan, to buy construction materials. This investment will help him have better living conditions and be able to offer his family a safe and dignified home.

Raul along with Cesar and Manuelita, make up part of the supportive group, “La Nueva”. They are responsible, entrepreneurial people who seek the same aim, to get ahead.

In this group: Cesar Alejandro, Raul Antonio, Manuelita
