A loan of $3,425 helped a member to buy a computer for designing crafts.

Nueva Vida Group's story

Mrs. María de Lourdes is 33 years old and lives in the Tres Marías community in the municipality of Chalco, in Mexico state. She is married and has 5 children, all of whom are school-aged. This is why she began working with paper products and making crafts (shapes made of foam, felt, and other materials). She began more than three years ago, since her husband works in a food warehouse as a loader and his income is not enough to cover the family's needs. She chose this line of work to avoid neglecting the education and care of her children--which is her main priority, and she desires to see her children studying. She needs more capital to invest in her business, in order to generate higher earnings and be able to buy a computer to help her print her own designs for her crafts. For this reason she is getting together with other people she knows to ask for a loan through Fundación Realidad A.C. as they are looking for a better quality of life.
