Nuevas Lideres Group's story

The "Nuevas Líderes" ["New Leaders"] communal bank will be starting its first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Villa Adela Center. The group is comprised of six members and is directed by a board of directors headed by Ms. Nemesia. The members of this communal bank work in a variety of businesses. Among them we have: sweets sales, food sales, cosmetics sales, a neighborhood store and clothing sales. Ms. Nemesia indicates that this is the first time she has joined Pro Mujer, which she did through an invitation from one of her friends. She currently has a food sales business that she has run for 12 years. The loan that she will take out is for purchasing plates, carafes, a stove and a food stall, as she would like to expand her business and sell from another stall. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family as much as possible, as she is single and has three children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Nemesia responds that she likes the educational sessions and the savings.

In this group: Nemesia Paulina , Susy , Marisol , Maria Angelica , Sonia Ruthy, Lisbeth Evelyn
