Las Poetas Group's story

The communal bank "Grupo Solidario Las Poetas" is comprised of two members who are involved in different business activities. The coordinator of the group is Adela who is 43, single and lives in the town of Juticalpa.

Adela started working very young. Her mother taughter her to sell food and also to be a seamstress. Now she sells food such as tacos, enchiladas, baleadas (burritos), tajaditas (green plantain), yucca with pork cracklings and other fast foods. In the afternoons she sews dresses on an order basis.

She is requesting a loan to have enough money to buy more ingredients such as meat, flour, vegetables, sauces, beans, disposable plates and cups, green plantain and other products. This will restock her business with a wide variety of exquisit foods so she can meet the dfferent demands of her customers.

With the help of the loan Adela hopes to increase her earnings and improve her economy. She has been a FAMA borrower for three yers and her dream is to set up a restaurant in a nice, large place.
