A loan of $2,950 helped a member capital for business.


Grupo Nuevo Amanecer Group's story

In the year 2006, a group of 13 people organized with the goal of beginning a business that could help families of scarce resources in the town of Momostenango, Guatemala, and in this way, combat the poverty that exists in those places. To do this, they went to the ASDIR Association to solicit a loan, which they were granted after tests were conducted to determine if it was feasible to help them and, in this manner, contribute to making their dreams a reality. In the same way, these people have started a business. The members of the group are, for the most part, dedicated to selling clothing and produce and the rest of the members raise pigs and chickens and some of them are dedicated to grocery stores.

In this group: Wendy Margarita , Rosa , María Carmen , Tomasa , Efrain, Ana Lucrecia , Teresa , Maria Magdalena , Juliana , Paulina , Rebeca , Byron Eliseo , Roberto Carlos
