Martha Agripina's story

Martha Agripina M. is 51 years old. She is married and has six children. She lives in the Lempira neighborhood of Juticalpa and is a member of the Las Tres Mariposas [the three butterflies] solidarity group. Three years ago Martha starting selling tortillas and little by little with the support of the loans from FAMA has grown her business. She now has a small grocery store that she runs out of her house. Her dream is that soon she will be able to convert to a mini supermarket and that her children will be successful and continue their studies.

With the previous loans she started to build a wall around her house but she didn't have enough money to finish it. With this new loan she will buy chicken wire, metal posts and blocks and bags of.cement to finish building the wall.

When the wall is finished Martha and her family will feel much safer, their home will be more beautiful and her clients will feel that her store has a more agreeable location. Martha has been a good client of FAMA's and has always made her payments on time.
