Nueva Vida Group's story

Doña Maria Petrona is the President of the Nueva Vida Group, which in English translates to the ¨New Life Group¨. Maria is 58 years old, married, and has 7 children. Her husband works in agriculture and helps support the family.

Maria would like to use her portion of the group´s loan to purchase more pigs and hens for her animal raising business. She has 12 years experience raising animals and enjoys the work very much.

She hopes to continue to grow her business and run a much larger farm someday in the future.

Other group members of the Nueva Vida Group are involved in making sweaters and pants, clothing sales, general store management, and animal raising and sales.
