La Nueva Guardia Group's story

The LA NUEVA GUARDIA communal bank is made up of eight members, seven ladies and one gentleman. Natalia is the bank’s president. She is 36 years old and has two children, ages 9 and 17. She sells food but does not have a fixed stall, instead she delivers her lunches to different parts of the market where she sells. Natalia is a hardworking lady who has acquired a stable life little by little and has also become popular because she is well known to her customers and provides them with very friendly service. She will use the money from this loan to buy ingredients, such as groceries and cooking oil in quantity to make her food. She believes that she will be able to grow her business through her efforts and continue to be the parent for the well-being of her family and herself. Natalia’s desire is to have a fixed food stall because this will help grow her business. She is happy and grateful to the institution for the support given her and her fellow group members because they work hard to get ahead.
