A loan of $4,350 helped a member to purchase animals to raise.


Nueva Vida Group's story

Maria started the Nueva Vida community bank which is currently in its 4th loan cycle. It has 13 members who live about 50 kilometers from Curuguaty in the town of Ybypyta II. The women in the group all work and help each other to get ahead. They are in a rural area with many risks and few means of communication.

Maria raises small animals such as chickens, pigs, goats, and others and sells them. She intends to move forward and grow to give her family what they need with this work. She is a person who makes sacrifices. In spite of many difficulties, she is getting ahead and showing that with effort it is possible to succeed.

She is requesting this loan to purchase animals to raise, which will help her realize her business plan and increase her income.

In this group: Maria, Elesa, Maria, Felicia, Maria, Estela, Rumilda, Catalina, Marcelina, Norma, Herminia, Eleuteria, Arminda
