Senderos De Paz Group's story

The solidarity group Senderos de Paz has three members who work in different economic activities in the village of San Nicolás, Juticalpa, Olancho.

The group coordinator is Marlen, who is 37 years old, and married with three children. Her husband works in the United States. It is a hardworking and honest family.

Marlen began selling a few grocery store products and realized that the earnings were very good and so she decided to set up a little grocery store in her home that she attends to from 6:00 AM until 9:00 PM. The advantage is that she has very good profits in the business and it allows her to support her family and educate her children.

She is asking for a loan in order to put in balconies and to paint her house. With the help of the loan, she will have better security for her house because she will put in the balconies.

Marlen currently has no financial status problems but in some seasons the sales are low and therefore her sales. Her goal is for her business to remain stable in order to be able to go on supporting her family. She has more than 15 cycles with FAMA and is very grateful for the help she has received.

In this group: Marlen Esperanza, Eda Cristina, Justa
