Nueva Generacion Group's story

The Nueva Generacion ["New Generation"] group is made up of 3 women who live in El Matazano Jamastran. They have known each other for a long time and are good friends. The following is a description of their businesses:

Mrs. Reina Isabel C. sells common consumer products and basic grains. She has a small general store in her home. Her store operates under the name "Enid". She works in it herself, and it is clear that it is well-managed. Her business is located at the intersection of the neighbourhoods in the mountainous zone of the Valle de Jamastran.
She will use her loan for the purchase of merchandise to stock her store.

Mrs. Orfilia Escoto López is a merchant. She mainly sells agricultural products and stationery, and provides photocopying for all types of documents. Her store is called “Agropecuaria Matazano”. She has more than 2 years' experience in this kind of business. She told us that it has gone very well for her since she is located in a strictly agricultural area, a prime location for this type of business.
She will use her loan for the purchase of agricultural products and general stationery.

Mrs. Yeny Lizzeth Cáceres has sold cosmetics for over 2 years, during which time things have gone very well for her, since she uses her income to help her husband with the household costs without having to ignore her domestic responsibilities and her family.
She will use her loan for the purchase of cosmetics.

In this group: Reina Isabel, Orfilia Escoto, Yeny Lizzeth
