Nuevas Emprendedoras Group's story

The group 'Nuevas Emprendedoras' (means 'New Entrepreneurs') is in its second loan cycle with the lending institution. They completed a questionnaire designed to help them determine where they stand with regard to the poverty line so that they can work to remedy the situation. Hilda works as a seamstress and makes sheets, pillowcases, clothing for the great outdoors, shirts for the office, school clothes, and bedspreads. The institution has people advising the group on what to learn, check that the members attend the relevant classes, and encourage the women to fight to overcome poverty. The work of these advisers is very appreciated. Hilda asks for a loan in order to buy cloth so as to make more items. This will help her improve her business plan and increase her income.

In this group: Hilda, Elisa, Dominga, Eligia, Lidia, Bacilicia, Dima, Nidia, Timotea, Sebastiana, Maria, Maria, Jovina, Maria, Faustina, Analicia, Ninfa, Johana, Lucia*, Ramona*, Norma*, Yanina*
