Ciudad Nueva Group's story

The group called Ciudad Nueva [New City] is in its 20th cycle. It is a very old group that have been working together, fighting for their families. They are completing the Elimination of Poverty Survey that will enable each one of them to understand her situation and work accordingly.

One of the members is Señora Elvira. She is fighting to improve her living conditions and those of her family—who are those for whom she is fighting—by working and striving, and by selling hens, eggs, and cheese that she makes.

Señora Elvira is requesting this loan for the purchase of feed for laying hens, vitamins, and other items, which will help her to obtain more production and more sales; and this will help her to improve her income.

In this group: Honorina, Florencia, Liz, Felipa, Sofia, Francisca, Elvira, Ramona, Joaquina, Graciela, Gestrudis, Mercedes, Emanuela, Pabla, Romina*, Zunilda*, Bernardina*
