Las Llaves Del Exito Group's story

Delmis, 37, is a member of the “Las Llaves del Éxito” (The Keys to Success) communal bank. She has four children and her husband’s a carpenter. They live in the community of Llaves in the municipality of Juticalpa, Olancho.

Delmis is a seamstress. She learned in a dressmaking academy and then decided to buy a machine to make outfits in various styles. She’s had her own sewing business for the last seven years and she works from 8am until 6pm. During the Christmas season, the start of the school year and during Independence she does not stick to a set schedule because work is abundant and she can barely keep up with it.

Her advantage is that she has a good clientele and her disadvantage is that she sells on credit and sometimes she’s not paid. The loan Delmis is asking for will be used to buy fabric, lining, decorations, elastic, thread, buttons, zippers, etc.

With help from this loan she will be able to offer her customers a greater variety of fabric and with this she hopes her income will improve to be able to help cover her children’s schooling costs. Her goal is to be able to have a larger workshop that will generate higher profits. Delmis has been a FAMA client for ten years and has made her installment payments punctually.
