Vita Nova Group's story

Sra. Flor is a nurse technician and for a long time worked in her profession only to see that her wages did not meet the cost of raising her child as a single mother. She decided to leave her job and look for a different way to make her living. This is why she began selling spices (chili pepper, seasonings) in a market in her area. Her business was big when she realized that in this business she made more than in her old job. At the beginning, she only had a little half-meter wooden cart with little merchandise that, with much work, she managed to buy with her savings. In the market she listens to her neighbor merchants about EDAPROSPO, and this is how they joined and formed the group VITA NOVA 2 years ago. She is thankful to the organization because it is by means of the loans that have been increasing and are incredible to her that the little cart with which she started is now only a memory. Now she has a big store, and sells not only spices but also meat, disposables, etc. She is the best known in that area, so her profits are greater. For her effort and sacrifice she has achieved many things, but the most important to her is that her son can follow a university career. She also married, and helps her husband in the business he has as a tailor. What she wants for the future is to invest in the textile business. Her husband does it and knows that it is profitable. They are saving up for the money they need to invest in this. She will use the money from her current loan to buy spices and seasonings for her business because these days sales are going up. Sra. Flor has strong faith and is grateful to God for all that she has received. She has worked hard to achieve everything else, and has always had a strong desire to do things the right way.
