A loan of $3,000 helped a member to buy general merchandise.


Nuevo Amanecer Group's story

Ana is 41 years old and is a member of the Nuevo Amanecer (“New Dawn”) group. She is married and has four children. It is a very united and hard-working family. Thirty years ago Ana opened a general store. It was difficult for her since she did not have any capital or experience. She works in the general store with the support of her husband and help of her two daughters. The store opens at 6am and closes at 10pm and on the weekends they sell wholesale. The advantage for Ana is that the business provides her with what she needs to support the family and pay the bills. It also allows her to pay for the education of and look after the health of all of the family. The business helps the neighbourhood by selling essential items.

She is asking for a loan to buy rice, sugar, butter, soap, soft drinks, churros and sweets amongst other things. With the help of this loan she will be able to obtain resources at low cost and make the right investment. Her goal is to continue increasing her stock and increase the size of the store. She has been supported by FAMA for over 10 years and has made her loan repayments punctually.

In this group: Ana Silvia, Francis Azucena, Lesbia Margarita, Luisa Mercedes, Doris Lastenia, Tania Yaneth, Juan Carlos, Denia Suyapa, Alma Sagrario, Iris Idalia, Iris Yojana
