Las Amigas Group's story

José Medardo is married with 4 children. His children all go to school and depend on him. His wife sells shoes and new clothing. Previously, José worked as a primary school teacher but because of health issues he had to leave his job. As he didn’t want to be a burden on his family, he decided to open a candy stand in the community park. José is requesting a loan to invest in the buying of all kinds of sweets, gum, chocolates, cookies, candies, etc. With this loan, he can stock his candy stand and continue to contribute financially to the feeding, education and health of his children. José’s income is not very much so his biggest dream is to increase his income in order to improve the household earnings. José has been a client of FAMA for many cycles and has always paid his loans on time.
