Kari Elizabeth
Kari, 30, is married and has five children. She resides in the town of Moroceli and works selling beans.

She started this business three years ago when it occurred to her that she could grow beans on the back patio of her house, so she decided to do it and she did. Thanks to God the product of her harvest was very good, and from that moment on she knew that the work would allow her to support her family and give them the most things necessary to have a live of dignity. She sells from her house and her neighbors are her main customers.

Kari will use the loan that she is requesting to buy several loads of beans because her crop doesn't give her enough. With the help of this loan she hopes to increase her sales and, with this, her earnings will go up and her business will remain active.

Her goal is to have a grocery store and expand the range of products to offer her customers a variety of basic grains.

This is her second loan cycle with FAMA and she hopes to fulfill her loan payments punctually and continue helping her husband with the support of their home. She especially hopes to be able to continue covering her children's school expenses because her dream is for them to have a better life than she did.

Kari tiene 30 años de edad, es casada y tiene cinco hijos, reside en el municipio de Moroceli y se dedica a la venta de frijoles. Ella inició con esta actividad hace tres años atras cuando se le ocurrió que en el patio trasero de su casa podia sembrar frijoles y entonces se decidió y lo hizo, y gracias a Dios el producto de su cosecha fue muy bueno y desde ese momento supo que esa actividad le permitiria sostener a su familia y darles lo mas necesario para tener una vida digna. Las ventas las realiza en su casa y sus vecinos son sus principales clientes. El prestamo que esta solicitando Kari lo necesita para comprar varias cargas de frijoles porque no se da abasto con solo el producto de su siembra. Con el apoyo de este prestamo espera aumentar sus ventas y con eso sus ingresos aumentaran y su negocio se mantendra activo. Si meta es tener una bodega y ampliar la gama de productos para ofrecerle a sus clientes variedad de granos basicos. Este es su segundo ciclo en FAMA y espera cumplir puntualmente con el pago de sus cuotas y seguir ayudando a su esposo con el sostenimiento de su hogar especialmente espera poder seguir cubriendo los gastos de estudio de sus hijos porque ella sueña que tengan una mejor vida que la que tuvo ella.
