A loan of $3,350 helped a member to buy bundles of used clothing.

Unidas Por El Amor Group's story

Rosalía is 27 years old and a single mother with two children. She resides in the community of Rusio in the town of Juticalpa and sells second hand clothing. Rosalía started selling used clothing five years ago. She works alone and is a street vendor. Every day very early in the afternoons from about 1:00 p.m. she goes out into the nearest communities to make her sales and then returns home at about 7:00 p.m.

Rosalía, thank God, is a healthy person who is friendly and very well known among her neighbors. The advantages are that she has many customers and her clothes are rapidly sold, however the difficulty is that she has to go to the city to buy bundles of clothes and this entails expenses because she has to pay for transportation.

She is requesting this loan to purchase several bundles of used clothing so that she can stock her business with current seasonal styles. With the help of this loan she will be able to attract more customers and will continue having a business that allows her to cover the expenses of maintaining her children. Her dream is to have her own shop and to help her children become professionals. Rosalía has been a FAMA client for the past ten years and has punctually made all of her payments on time.
