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

Edwar Mauricio's story

Edwar is twenty-four years old, single, and lives with his mom and five siblings. His siblings are students and his mom is a housewife. He is a friendly, respectful, hardworking, and very determined person. He began his business two years ago with some small savings he had. He began by buying some household products and little by little he stocked his business until he converted it into a local store. Currently he makes a living selling general groceries and began the business by his own initiative. His work schedule is from 6:00am to 8:00pm and he does this by himself. Edwar needs the loan that he is requesting to buy products like: sugar, rice, butter, ham, juice, instant corn masa mix, soft drinks, and sweets, among other items. With the help of this loan he will be able to stock his business and offer his customers everything they need. His goals are to achieve building his house, being able to improve his business, and expanding the store. This is the first loan that Edwar is requesting from FAMA and he hopes to pay his payments punctually.
