Francela Group's story

The group is comprised of three enterprising members. Olivia is one of them. She currently has a grocery store and an Enabas kiosk at her house. She started her business 33 years ago.

She used to work at a fabric factory. She used her severance pay and invested in fresh vegetables. Little by little she was buying products for her grocery store. One of her daughters helps her.

She will use the loan to buy basic grains like rice and beans, sugar, cooking oil, cheese, dairy products, toilet paper, detergent, and bath soap, etc.

Nora sells soft drinks and makes soup on the week-ends. Jahaira has a grocery store at her house.
