Nuevo Corazon Group's story

Eighteen women make up the group “Nuevo Corazon.” They work in the German Buch focal center located in the Huayna Potosi zone in the city of El Alto. They have diverse businesses such as selling soft drinks and making lunches but a common business for all is making clothing (shirts, blouses, dresses). After the clothing is made, they sell it in stalls they have in the “Ceja” of El Alto. They need capital to purchase special machinery to increase their production. They are certain that with this investment they will generate greater income with which they will be able to repay their loans and maintain the economic equilibrium of their homes.

In this group: Pascuala, Rosa*, Bernarda, Justina, Paulina*, Zulema, Felipa, Viviana, Alicia, Maria, Agreda, Crsitina, Jenny, Lordes, Amalia, Carlota, Elena, Fransisca
