Villa Nueva Nº 3 Group's story

Jilma’s married. She’s 53-years-old and has four children. Her husband is a coffee grower. She’s a very nice, accommodating, cheerful person who has a small home-based grocery store. She stared the grocery store business 32 years ago selling products like sugar, rice, lard, beans and other domestic use products.

She started working on her own initiative and in time learned how to run her business. Her daily work schedule is 6:30am to 8pm. Jilma is asking for this loan to buy products like rice, sugar, lard, salt and beans, among others.

With support from this loan she’ll be able to stock her store and continue to have a source of income to help her husband support their family. Her goal is to buy a coffee plantation with her savings and to enlarge the grocery store. Jilma has received FAMA help for three cycles by means of loans obtained and she’s maintained a good payment history.
