Maria Isabel Reyna's story

Maria Isabel is 47 years old, married and has nine children. She lives in the community of Abisinia, 16 kilometers from the city of Tocoa, Colon. Previously Maria and her husband sold milk until FAMA provided them with their first loan. This loan was used to buy natural medicine. She currently sells this medicine from her house. In the area where she is located, there is not another business like hers, so she has a guaranteed clientele. With the money from the loan that she is requesting she will buy vitamins, syringes, medicine to remove parasites, acetaminophen, ibuprofen, etc. In this way she will provide a larger variety of products for her small business. With the help of this loan, Maria will be able to assist her husband with the support of their family.
