Nueva Union Group's story

The Nueva Unión group is in its second cycle as a communal bank of women, in which all its members work and help one another get ahead. They are participating in a poverty elimination survey, and the great majority of the participants have been found to be improving the living conditions of their families.
One of the group members is Felipa, who fell into "level 3" poverty during the last survey cycle, which means that she is improving her living conditions and helping her family. Felipa is a seamstress, in addition to doing other types of work. She sews sheets, pillowcases, bedspreads and pants. Her work stands out and he is working hard to improve her family's circumstances.
Felipa requests this loan to invest in the purchase of a variety of fabrics so that she will be able to continue with her work and fulfill the orders of her clients. She is grateful for the opportunity she has been given, which will be of great help to her.
