Renacer Group's story

Doña Mercedes is married, 44 years old and has four children. Her husband works as a day laborer for a private business. She is a very friendly, helpful, happy, hardworking and honest person. Twelve years ago, she began working as a street vendor, selling sweets, such as cupcakes and “topollillos” (a Honduran popsicle). Currently she has a small store, but still continues working as a street vendor. Mercedes has gradually been stocking her store with other products that her customers ask her to sell.

She started to work for herself and over time learned to manage her business. Her work schedule begins at 5:30 a.m. and ends at 9 p.m. Doña Mercedes is requesting this loan in order to stock her business and continue having a source of income to help her husband support the family. Her main challenge is moving both her business and her family ahead. She has received support from FAMA through two loan cycles and has had a good record of repayment.
