A loan of $875 helped a member to purchase clothing to sell.


Camarones Group's story

Mabel is 33 years old. She is a member of the Camarones Communal Bank. She is married and has one child. Her husband works in the metal industry. They live in the Quebrada de Arena community in Tocoa, Colon. Mabel started her business selling clothes three years ago. Her work schedule if from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and she is a street seller. She needs the loan she is requesting to purchase different styles of clothing that will appeal to her customers so that she will be able to stock her business. The greatest difficulty she faces is related to the weather for when it is raining, her sales drop because she cannot do business on the street when it is raining and she does not own a vehicle to transport her goods. Mabel’s goal is to stabilize her business and to own a shop where she has a variety of garments to sell. This is her first loan from FAMA and she expects to make all of her payments on time.
