Nueva Esperanza Group's story

The Nueva Esperanza (New Hope) group is working and, with great effort, is getting ahead. They are 21 women who are completing the elimination of poverty survey to be able to understand what situation each of them is in. One person worthy of highlighting is Señora Lorenza, who works in vegetable sales. Through her efforts and daily struggle she shows that working is the only way one can get ahead and thus help one’s loved ones. She sees a great opportunity in the women’s committee program, and it is because of this that she joined this challenge. Today she is asking for this loan to be able to invest it in the purchase of fresh vegetables to sell, such as tomatoes, green peppers, onions, and other vegetables, and thus to keep investing in her microenterprise and to help her family as well.

In this group: Rosalba, Lorena, Ramona, Librada, Reinelia, Nilda, Teodora, Lorenza, Juana, Rosi, Apolonia, Fatima, Arminda, Zoraida, Gloria, Maria, Mirian, Limpia, Rosalia, Maria, Isidra
