Nuevo Horizonte Group's story

The committee named “Nuevo Horizonte” (New Horizon) is in the city of San Lorenzo. This group has 17 responsible members who strive to fulfill all of their commitments. They are female heads of households and strive to provide everything for their families on a daily basis.

Maria Cresencia sells charcoal. She says that her business is doing much better each time because her sales increase as the price of charcoal goes lower. Maria Cresencia is an enterprising individual who always strives to move forward and help her family members. She is requesting a loan in order to buy charcoal so that she can complete her customers’ orders and stock her business.

Maria Cresencia is grateful for this wonderful opportunity that her group has received. Not only will the members benefit, but their families will also enjoy the results.
