A loan of $5,625 helped a member to buy pork and mote.


Nueva Esperanza Group's story

The group “NUEVA ESPERANZA” (New Hope) will begin their ninth cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Panamericana. The group is composed of 12 members and is directed by a board of directors where Adriana is the secretary. Members of the group are involved in the following businesses: two grocery stores, selling pork, pastries, tailoring, selling juice, selling vegetables, selling oil, woven bags and awayos, a butcher shop, woven blankets, food sales.

The loan will benefit small micro-enterprises where Adriana has an integral part. She indicated that it is the fifth year that integrates Pro Mujer, entering at the invitation of a friend that is a member of the institution. She currently has a business selling pork cracklings. She began this business on her own, and it is very profitable.

The loan will increase capital (to buy pork and mote) which will be acquired wholesale in store and sold at a higher profit. This will allow her to generate more resources to maintain her home. She is married and has two children.

When she was asked what she liked about Pro Mujer, she responded that she liked the training in the areas of health and credit.
