Las Orquidias Group's story

Sarahi is a member of the "Las Orquidias" Solidarity Group. She is twenty years old, married and has 5 children. She started her fruit and vegetable business 2 years ago. She learned the business from her boss who used to work in a warehouse selling vegetables. Sarahi starts her day at 6:00am and doesn't finish working until 5pm. She works with her husband.

One of the disadvantages of her business is that she has to pay to rent the space she uses. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy fruits and vegetables, in order to meet all her clients' needs. With the loan she will be able to stock her business and her clients won't go elsewhere to shop. With her earnings, Sarahi will be able to pay some of her families' expenses. Her dream is to own her own store and to expand her business. Sarahi has received loans from FAMA before and has always repaid on time.
