Nueva Esperanza Group's story

Together with Olga L., thirteen women have been working with Pro-Mujer for approximately six years. They meet every two weeks, in the center of Villa Exaltación, where they carry out their activities in a responsible manner. A diversity of businesses exist within the group, some are seamstresses, other dedicate themselves to knitting and selling sweaters, and they also make bricks to later sell on order.

The association “Nueva Esperanza” (“New Hope”) needs to grow its sales so they can buy raw materials. They are certain of their ability to generate added income, with the final aim of improving their standards of living.

In this group: Olga, Felicidad, Adelaida, Martha, Rosmery, Antonia, Brigida, Juana, Benita, Veimar*, Paulina, Severina, Raquel
