Nueva Esperanza Group's story

The “Nueva Esperanza” (New Hope) Committee was established out of the entrepreneurial spirit of a group of women who needed to generate more income to improve their quality of life. They will use this loan in different ways depending on the business activities of each member.

Sra. Lorenza provides manicure and pedicure services in her free time. She receives appointment requests over the phone and provides her services in the homes of her clients. Lorenza already has an established clientele and earns a steady income from this line of work. She says that this business generates essential income to help with her family’s expenses. In order to improve her services, she wants to acquire more sophisticated equipment such as distinct types of nail files, callus files, tweezers, and other items. She is requesting a loan to buy this equipment and thanks Kiva for helping people of limited resources who are eager to work.

In this group: Lorenza, Teresa, Mercedes, Ada, Editt, Ydalina, Ester, Patrocinio, Gricelda, Cristina, Maria , Gloria, Guillermina, Gricelda , Andrea, Victoriana, Ramona
