A loan of $1,025 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.


Iris Ordelina's story

Iris, 43, is married and has four children. Her husband is a farmer. She is a tenacious woman living in the community of Bijao in the city of Juticalpa, Olancho. Iris started her business six years ago. She sells groceries in general. She started the business on her own initiative and works with one of her daughters. The grocery store opens at 6am and closes at 9pm. The advantage is that she uses profits from the grocery store to help support her family. Iris is asking for this loan to buy products like rice, sugar, lard, juices, milk, candy, soft-drinks and vegetables, among others. With help from this loan she will be able to stock her store and offer her customers everything they need. Her goal is to enlarge the grocery store in order to turn it into a mini supermarket. This is the second sequence Iris has requested from FAMA; she’s made all her installment payments punctually.
