A loan of $1,125 helped a member to buy creams and lotions to sell.

2012 Group's story

Sonia is 22 years old. She is a member of the "Grupo Solidario 2012" ["2012 Solidarity Group"]. She is married and has two children. Her husband works as a driver. They live in the neighborhood of Subirama, in the city of Bonito Oriental, Colon. Sonia is a very responsible and honest person. She started her business three years ago, and she works selling creams and lotions. She goes out to work every evening, going to the places where her neighbors and friends are, and selling as a mobile vendor. Sonia is requesting this loan to invest in buying creams and lotions so she can stock her business. With the help of this loan, her business will grow, and it will benefit her because she will be able to sell her customers everything they need. One of the inconveniences for her is that she does not have a shop where she can sell her products to her customers. Her dreams are that her business will grow and provide her with more earnings, so that she can help her children get ahead and help her husband with the household expenses. She would also like to have her own store so that she does not have to walk around selling as a mobile vendor. This is the second loan that Sonia is requesting with FAMA, and up to now she has not had any problems with her payments.
