Norma Agustina
Norma Agustina R. C. is 38, and lives in the La Hoya de Juticalpa neighborhood. She has 2 children, 15 and 11, and she is married. She began selling cosmetics as a street vendor but she didn’t have enough money nor time left to take care of her family. Then she changed the business and set up a sweets stand in front of her house and sold all types of cookies and a big variety of candies. Three years ago she decided to open a small general store in one part of her house and now she sells all kinds of merchandise. Her hours in the store are Monday through Sunday from 6:00 am to 9:00 pm, and her children help her take care of it which gives her more time with the family.

She needs a loan to stock the store with basics such as rice, sugar, soap, lard, oil, chicken, flour, oil, condiments, sauces, pasta, churros (fried crullers), cookies, candies, soft drinks, etc. This way she can offer her customers a wide variety of products.

Her dream is to grow her business and that it will offer sufficient income to be able to help her husband with family and school expenses, since she wants her children to be professionals so that they can have a better life.

She has been a client of FAMA for 4 cycles and has made her payments punctually, and thanks to the loans, she has been able to keep her business going.
