A loan of $850 helped a member to buy a bundle of clothes.

Trabajando Con Fe Group's story

Reina Isabel is a member of the “Trabajando con Fe” (Working with Faith) communal bank. She’s 50 years old and the mother of two children. She lives with her husband in Tocoa, Colon.

This is a family of very few resources but very hardworking, honest and with good principles. Reina has been selling used clothes for a long time and she also has a small grocery store. She’s been able to raise her family with this business. She works with her husband and her work schedule selling clothes is Friday to Sunday and weekdays she works tending to the grocery store. One of her advantages is that she has a good clientele because her business is well-stocked.

Reina will use the requested loan to buy a bundle of used seasonal clothes to offer her customers a variety of styles. She is sure that with support from this loan her sales will increase and as a result so will her income. One of her challenges is to be able to work with her own capital. Reina has been working with Fama for two cycles and has made her installment payments punctually.
