Nueva Alegria Group's story

The Nueva Alegría group is made up of women representing various business activities. Some are seamstresses, others work as merchants or domestic employees, but they all complement each other well. Nueva Alegría is a new group in its first loan cycle, and its members are enthusiastic, happy and eager to put their loans to good use.

Ilda is a seamstress, she sews and mends many different types of clothing. Over time, she has gained considerable experience and more importantly, a good reputation among her customers for her dedication, for always finishing her work on time, and for her good prices. The loan Ilda is requesting will be used to buy materials such as fabric, scissors, ribbons, etc. so that she can earn more income by offering a greater variety to her customers.
