Caminando Con Jesus Group's story

Raimunda is a member of the “Caminando con Jesús” (Walking with Jesus) communal bank. She’s 63-years-old, married and the mother of five children. Her husband works in agriculture and she sells groceries. She lives in the city of Juticalpa.

Raimunda has had a grocery store for the last four years. It’s open to the public from 6am until 6pm. She works alongside an employee that helps her take care of customers whenever she needs to go out to buy merchandise to stock the grocery store. She also helps her out during the morning when Raimunda works as a cleaning lady at a government institution.

Raimunda needs the loan to buy rice, beans, lard, soap, oil, pasta, sauces, condiments, snacks, soft-drinks, bread, meat, cured meats and chicken among other food items. With support from this loan she will be able to stock her store and her customers won’t go elsewhere to buy because she’ll have a little of everything. Her dream is to build her store out of concrete blocks since it’s currently wood and to support her children so that they can finish their academic studies. Raimunda has been in several FAMA cycles and has made her payments punctually.
