Nuevo Fruto Group's story

This group consists of three enterprising members. One of them is a 25-year-old woman named Alma. She is married and has three young children (a four-year-old and two two-year-olds). Alma has a grocery business and also sells cooked beans. She previously worked in the Free Trade Zone as an operator and gradually saved up her money until she was able to open her store. This enabled her to be near her children so that she could look after them. Her loan will be invested in basic grains such as rice, beans, sugar, oil, dairy products, beef, chicken, trinkets, popular medicines, cosmetics, men’s colognes, women’s perfumes, lotions, and other items.

Hellen is a 31-year-old woman who has a business of selling Zermat and Avon cosmetics. She also sells various clothing such as shirts, shorts, men’s trousers, women’s trousers, and other items.

Arli is 37 years old and has a business selling fried foods every day from her home.

In this group: Alma Iris, Arli Ovidia, Hellen Patricia
