Grupo Solidario Dios Es Amor Group's story

Mrs. Maria Dionisia H. is 46 years old, married, has 4 children, and lives with her family in the town of San Francisco de la Paz, Olancho. Twelve years ago, without much knowledge about business, Mrs. Maria Dionisia decided to make a living by installing a small grocery store in her home. She works from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. and thanks to the loans she has received from FAMA she has been able to invest more in her business and now owns one of the most successful businesses in the community. Her quality of life has also improved and she has been able to buy some cows. She is coordinator of the Solidarity Group, God is Love, and together with her 6 fellow members has been active for 4 years in FAMA. The loan she is requesting is needed to supply her grocery store with more and varied products such as: rice, beans, condiments, salsas, spaghetti, churros, sodas, margarine, oil, candies, etc. Her dream is that her business develop into a small market and that she make more profits for her children to study so that they can become university students.
