Unidas Por El Amor Group's story

Communal bank "Unidas por el amor" ("United for love") is comprised of eleven female partners and one male partner, all of which have various economic activities in their community.
Maria Salome is the coordinator of the communal bank. She is 53 years old and married with four children. She is a hardworking woman who lives in the village of Rusio, in the city of Juticalpa, Olancho. She runs a small grocery store in a small part of her home. She started the store with the first credit she received from FAMA in 2002.
Maria needs this loan in order to purchase general merchandise such as sugar, rice, refreshments, butter, meat, chicken, cold cuts, bread and other goods. With the support of this loan she will have a larger and more varied business, and her customers will be able to find everything they need to make their food. This way she can cover her home and health expenses.
Her goal is to expand her business and eventually own a general store. She also dreams of improving her home, because it is in pretty bad condition. Maria Salome has been a client of FAMA for nine years and she hopes to repay this new loan in a punctual and responsible fashion as she has done so far.
