A loan of $800 helped buy products to resell.

Juana's story

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.
