A loan of $975 helped a member to buy candy.

Nuevo Futuro Group's story

The A.C. “NUEVO FUTURO” will begin its first cycle as part of the Centro Focal Santiago II. It consists of 8 members and is lead by a board headed by Señora Silvia. The businesses the members of the communal bank are involved in are various among which are: candy sales, services and production.

Señora Silvia says that it is the first time that she works with Pro Mujer, having joined on the recommendation of relatives. She currently has a business selling candy which she has run for years.

The loan she will now receive is to increase her capital to buy candy which she will purchase in La Ceja and sell in her shop. This kind of work allows her to generate income with which to support her family in any way possible, as she is married and has 2 children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she says that she likes the health benefits and the loans.
