Medio Ambiente Group's story

Doña Digna is 55 years old, married and has 3 children. Her husband makes his living in agriculture. She lives in the Posos community of the city of Juticalpa, Olancho Department. For the last 15 years, doña Digna has worked selling cosmetics. A friend of hers, who made her living selling cosmetics, started the business, and doña Digna started working jointly with her. That is how she started getting experience. She travels around to sell her products, since her customers place orders. Doña Digna needs the requested loan to purchase new merchandise, such as: lotions, creams, hair conditioners, facial creams and other products. One of doña Digna's goals is to teach her children to make an honest living, as that is the best legacy she can leave them. She hopes to be a successful micro-entrepreneur and to be able to have her own shop for selling her products. Doña Digna's financial life has changed greatly, as she has been receiving support with FAMA loans for 15 years. She has punctually complied with her re-payment schedules.
