Celeste Group's story

Mariela is 26 years old. She is a member of the Celeste Solidarity Group. She is married and the mother of 2 children. Her husband works growing coffee. They are hard-working, honest and responsible people. They live in the community of La Unión, Olancho. For the past five years, Mariela has worked selling used clothing, a profession she learned through her own efforts. She serves her customers from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Mariela needs the loan she is requesting to invest in buying bales of clothing with styles that are in fashion, so that they will be attractive to her customers, and thus she can increase her sales. Mariela's economic life has gradually changed since she began receiving support through FAMA's loans. Her goal is to improve her business and teach her children how to do honest work, which is the best inheritance she can give them. This is the sixth loan that Mariela has requested with FAMA, and up to now she has always been punctual with her loan payments.
