Nueva Esperanza Group's story

The group "Nueva Esperanza" (New Hope) is made up of 3 women who have different businesses. They live in a village called Vista Hermosa. Carolina T. has a tortilla business, and at times also sells gifts from her home in the free time that remains after she attends to her tortilla business. She has 3 children who attend school in the same village. She has had these businesses for 10 years. Hortencia T. has sold traditional Guatemalan clothing from her home for 6 years. Angélica T. has a tortilla business and store in her house, where she has worked very hard for 15 years. She tells us that her mother supported her and motivated her to continue with her business. Each of these women state that their objective is to be able to invest in their businesses so that they can have everything that their customers ask for, and can continue to get ahead with their businesses and their families.
