A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy groceries.

Caminando Con Jesus Group's story

Raimunda is a member of the “Caminando con Jesús” (Walking with Jesus) communal bank. She’s 63-years-old, married and the mother of five children; her husband works in agriculture. She sells groceries and lives in the city of Juticalpa.

Raimunda has had a grocery store for the last four years and it’s open to the public from 6am until 6pm. She works alongside an employee who helps her take care of customers when she has to go out to buy merchandise to stock the store and also helps her during the morning because Raimunda also works as a cleaning lady at a government institution.

The loan Raimunda is asking for is needed to buy rice, beans, lard, soap, oil, noodles, sauces, condiments, snacks, soft-drinks, bread, meat, cured meats and chicken among other food items.

With help from this loan she will be able to stock the store and her customers won’t have to go somewhere else to buy because she’ll have a little bit of everything. Her dream is to build her store with blocks since it’s currently made of wood and to support her children so that they can complete their academic studies.

Raimunda has been in several FAMA cycles and she’s been a punctual client with respect to the payment of her installments.
