A loan of $900 helped a member to buy women's and children's clothes.


G/s Genesis Group's story

Julia Alejandrina P., 48, is a single mother living in the El Edén neighborhood with her three children who are 27, 25 and 24 years of age.

Julia started to sell natural remedies in an itinerant way spending most of the time walking the streets of a large part of the city while her children were in school. After some time, she changed her line of work and now she sells women’s and children’s underwear, blouses, skirts, sandals, long and short pants during the day. At night she works in a small restaurant called Las Dos Torres where she prepares a variety of snacks.

Julia is asking for a Lps. 7000 loan to buy a larger amount of clothes, especially those in season so that she can attract more customer attention and increase sales.

Her dream is to own her own home and stop paying rent and to have a small store that will allow her to continue to earn income because she also has a grandson under her care and needs money to support her household.

Her fellow group members are Lilian and Luisa. Lilian sells clothes and shoes and also works at the Las Dos Torres restaurant but during days. Luisa sells clothes and cosmetics. She has an eye problem, though: cataracts.

This is the second loan the group has requested from FAMA and they have demonstrated that they are very responsible people with regard to their repayments.

In this group: Julia Alejandrina , Luisa Elena , Lilian Dalila
