Faustina has been selling women’s and children’s clothing for ten years. Recently she started to sell sandwiches and juice with a loan she took from FSMA. She operates the two activities in a much crowded place. The elder son helps her sell the goods.

At present, she has more facilities to help meet the expenses of the family and she is in better condition to improve the education of her children.

Faustina needs funds to purchase raw materials to supply her sandwich and juice business. She will keep preparing the dishes and will let her son run the business in the morning. She will concentrate upon the clothing sales. She explains that with just one activity she won’t be able to bear all the expenses of her family.
