A loan of $2,950 helped a member to purchase bundles of used clothing.

Senderos De Luz Group's story

"Grupo Solidario Senderos de Luz" [Paths of Light Solidarity Group] is made up of four members who work in different economic activities in the hamlet of Zopilotepe in Juticalpa municipality. Julia Cecilia is the coordinator of this Solidarity Group. She sells secondhand clothing, is married, has three daughters, and is a very well known figure in the community with very good references on the part of her customers and neighbors.

Julia Cecilia's first business was a bookstore but it didn't do well and she decided to switch to a different business. Today she sells used clothes for women, men, boys and girls, and also has a photocopy machine which earns her a little extra. She tends her business herself, and her day starts at 7 am and ends at 8 pm. Her greatest advantage is that she doesn't neglect her family on account of her business, since she sells the clothing in her own home and doesn't have to pay rent for a shop.

Julia Cecilia is requesting this loan in order to purchase bundles of used clothing in summery styles to attract more attention during Holy Week, and in this way increase her sales. This will greatly benefit her and her family. Her dream is to make her business grow and branch out into different product lines. This will be her fifth loan from FAMA and she expects to continue fulfilling her commitment by making her payments on time.

In this group: Elida Rosa, Vilma Maria, Julia Cecilia, Reina Rumilda
