Clavel Group's story

Julissa, 29, is a member of the “Clavel” (Carnation) communal bank; she’s married and her husband is a merchant. They are a hardworking, responsible family. She started her business selling snacks and juices and then decided to sell food and the business had good results so she still is selling grilled meat and snacks. She’s open to the public from 4pm until 10pm. The loan Julissa is requesting is to buy products like meat, beans, lard, vegetables and cheese to make the food she offers her customers. With support from the loan she will be able to offer more products to her clientele. The only inconvenience Julissa faces is competition since there’s another place nearby that sells snacks which is why she tries to sell top quality products so her sales won’t be affected. Her goal is to open a restaurant to better care for her customers and offer more products that will satisfy their wishes. This is Julissa’s first loan request to FAMA and she expects to make her installment payments punctually.
