A loan of $775 helped a member to buy food products and clothing.

Duo Solidario Los Guachipilines Group's story

Mrs. Patricia, a member of the ‘Duo Solidario los Guachipilines’, shared that several years ago she saw the opportunity to open a store in the center of her town since there was only one store in that area. She started selling coffee, sugar and corn and now sells a variety of products.

Her dream is to have a well-stocked grocery store where she will not have to tell her costumers, “No, I don’t have…”. She is requesting the loan to buy more products for the store.

Mrs. Florentina J., who sells clothing, told us that she opened her business with savings she and her husband had from the sales of pears, apples and peaches. She requested a loan from FAPE and used it to stock her store. Her clothing has been in good demand, so she is requesting this loan to buy more merchandise. This would allow her to continue helping with her children’s education and feeding and improving their lives because they have the future ahead of them.
