A loan of $2,750 helped a member to purchase sugar, chocolate, packaging and molds.


Nueva Esperanza Group's story

The Nueva Esperanza Communal Bank is made up of eight responsible members who have been improving themselves through their businesses. This is the case of Gloria who started out by helping to make chocolates; then a while later she decided to go out on her own with the knowledge she had learned. Now she sells her own chocolates that she makes herself..

This business has enabled her to improve her family’s quality of life. Her latest loan will be used to purchase sugar, chocolate, packaging and molds. She aspires to carrying out her business. Gloria is married and has four children, three of whom are still dependents.

The Nueva Esperanza group is grateful to the people who made this loan possible. Gloria is shown seated, the first person on the right, dressed in a red tee shirt and a purple vest.

In this group: Sebastiana, Lucila, Juana Ricardina*, Angelica, Zenaida, Elmer Faustino, Gloria Antonieta, Teodora
