A loan of $550 helped a member to buy rice, corn, beans, etc.

Renacer Group's story

Sara Amileth C. H. is 33 years old. She lives in the small town of La Concepción. She married to José Cáceres and has three children who are 16, 15, and 13 years old. Three years ago she and her husband opened a small grocery store in their home. Now they also have a small store located in the municipal bus terminal where her husband sells all kinds of fruits and vegetables. She works from 5:30AM until 6:0PM. Her father taught her to work.

The loan will be used to buy a large variety of seasonal fruits and also vegetables, dairy products, basic grains like rice, corn, and beans, pastas, sauces, condiments, etc. With this loan, she will be able to offer her customers more and different products. She will also have more income to use to cover the school costs for her children and also to feed her family.

One of the challenges she faces is that the location where they have the fruit and vegetable business isn’t very good. Every month they have to pay rent and oftentimes sales aren’t very good. However, she can count on the income from the small grocery store she has in their home, and that way she can help her husband.

Her dream is to see her children grow up healthy and for them to be professionals and very hardworking. She also hopes that the location where they have the fruit and vegetable business can someday belong to them.

She has been a client with FAMA for 10 years and it is thanks to the loans that she has received that she has her current business.
