Nueva Esperanza Group's story

Maria Liz A. was the focal point for beginning this group. She invited and organized her friends to form the “Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras” (Committee for Entrepreneurial Women).

Maria Liz A. sells clothing and now she wants to begin selling cosmetics. She’s been married to Ignacio R. for 16 years. He works for a large company. They have four children, three in junior high school and one three year old daughter. Maria Liz requested a loan to buy products that will provide a better assortment in her businesses (coats, sheets, creams, colognes, and cosmetics).

Some day she would like to open a store in downtown Luque and in that way be able to increase her income to provide the best for her children.

All the members of the committee are hard working women hoping for a better quality of life for their families. They have approached this institution hoping that they will get the assistance that they need.

In this group: Rocio Elodora, Patricia Lorena, Sonia Elizabeth, Margarita, Maria Leoncia, Ramona, Maria Liz, Virginia, Gladys, Maximina, Maria Celestina, Maria Guillermina, Teofila Azucena, Maria Cristina*, Zunilda*, Adriana*
