Juana B. F., 43, lives in the Honduran town of Tempiscapa. For some years, she has operated a business selling everyday products such as groceries and household supplies. Her family includes her husband and their four children who are 21-, 17-, 13, and 11-years old, respectively. Juana's business is very profitable because there's only one other business like hers in the town. Juana is applying for this loan so that she can stock her business with the products she sells (rice, sugar, beans, butter, churros, cookies, flour, soap, cleaning products, bread, coffee, etc.). She wants her customers to be able to find the products they need so that her shop will be the first one they come to. Juana wants to grow her business so that she, in turn, can provide her children with a good education and the best opportunities available to them. She has been a FAMA customer several times before and is very prompt about repaying her loans.

Juana B. F. tiene 43 años de edad, reside en la Aldea Tempiscapa. Desde hace unos años se dedica a la venta de productos de consumo alimenticio y para el quehacer del hogar. Su familia está conformada por su esposo y sus cuatro hijos de 21, 17, 13 y 11 años. Su negocio es muy rentable ya que en la Aldea solo hay dos pulperías y una es la de ella. Juana solicita este préstamo para surtir su negocio de más productos (arroz, azuca, frijoles, manteca, churros, galletas, maseca, jabon, azistin, ace, cloro, pan, cafe, etc) para que sus clientes encuentren lo que necesiten de manera que siempre visiten su pulpería y sea su primera opción. Su meta es tener un mercadito y educar a sus hijos para que tengan mejores oportunidades de vida. Ha sido clienta de FAMA por varios ciclos y es muy puntual en sus pagos.
