Izleta Group's story

Leticia is 39 years old and a member of the Izleta solidarity group. She is married and has two daughters. Her husband works in agriculture. They are a very hardworking and united family. They live in the Sonaguera community in Colon.

Leticia works selling food, an activity that she has done for ten years and that she learned from her mother. She works from 8:00am to 3:00pm and 6:00pm to 9:00pm. The advantage that she has is that she makes home deliveries and has contracts with some community events. Some of the difficulties she faces are that she does not have a store for her business so she works out of her house, which is far from the center of town.

With this loan, Leticia will purchase ingredients for the food she makes, such as meats, chicken, beans, butter, rice, bananas, sausage, vegetables, and more. With the help provided by this loan, she will be able to provide better service to her customers since she will be able to offer them everything they need.

Her goal is to establish a store that is more accessible to her customers in the center of the community. This is her first loan with FAMA and she hopes to meet her payments on time.
