A loan of $675 helped a member to buy underwear.


Solidaridad Group's story

Dilcia is 29 years old and she is a member of Grupo Solidaridad [Solidarity Group]. She is married and has 2 children. Her husband is a builder. Dilcia started her business selling underwear two years ago. Her business arose from necessity: she was let go at the company where she worked and so she had to find a way of earning some money for her family. One the difficulties she is having is not being able to sell her products in other communities because she does not have a bike or a car and feels public transport is too dangerous due to armed attacks. Dilicia needs the loan so she can invest in the purchase of more underwear. With the help of this loan she can buy more stock for her business and so attract more clients. Her main aim is to see her children graduate and her biggest dream is to find a spacious place in the city for her business where she can offer her cstomers a variety of styles of garments. This is the first time Dilicia has asked for a loan through FAMA and she hopes to pay her installments on time.
