Marcia`s Group's story

Marcia`s Group is composed of 8 people: four women and four men. Marcia is the group President. She lives in Alto Tambo very near San Lorenzo with her spouse and children who are 11 and 7 years old. She describes herself as a person who gets what she proposes and is quite responsible regarding her children’s education.

She has been working alone in a grocery store for the last five years but her business hasn’t been able to grow because she sold the food on credit and was unable to recuperate quickly.

This is her first loan request to Fodemi. She will be able to use the requested loan to stock her store with a variety of products to stabilize economically and be able to provide her children with an education in the city.

Her dream is to give her children a good education in the city and to see her grocery store grow and also to have a large general store eventually.

In this group: Marcia, Carlos, Nidia Lucila, Segundo , Segundo, Isabel, Orfilio, Luz
