Enma Cristina's story

Enma is 43 years old, she is married and she has six children. She lives with her family in Bella Vista, a village of the municipality of Juticalpa. She is a very hard working person and she has been engaged in selling groceries for a few years.

Enma runs a small corner shop in her house, working from 6 am to 8 pm. She started with a simple soft drink sales, but as the people who came buying at her stall where asking for basic daily products as well, she decided to ask FAMA for a loan, ad she took the necessary steps to set the corner shop she now owns. Her main advantage is being a well-known person in her village, and for this reason her neighbors prefer to buy their products in her corner shop.

The loan Enma is requesting will be used to buy general merchandise in order to supply her shop with rice, beans, sugar, butter, pasta, soft drinks, meat, sausage, dairy products, fritters, cookies, and sweets, among other basic products.

She aims at running a business that, by generating more earnings will help her keep on supporting her children with their studies, up to see them graduating at university; she also wants her life to improve.
