A loan of $1,175 helped a member to buy corn and beans.

Las Dos Amigas Group's story

Martha is 44 years old and is a member of the solidarity group Las Dos Amigas. She is married and has three children. Her husband works in trade, and they live in the community of Concordia, Campamento, Olancho. She works selling basic grains. She started her business on her own initiative and has been doing this activity for five years. During harvest time, Martha buys grains in large quantities and stores them in order to be able to sell them during times of grain shortages.

She is applying for the loan to invest it in buying corn and beans to keep her business stocked. With the help of this loan, she will be able to continue helping her children and husband with household expenses, since she will make a profit from the sale of her product. Her goal is to be able to have a small store that buys and sells basic grains in her community. This is the third loan Martha has received from FAMA and she has made her payments on time.
