Nueva Luz Group's story

Martha is 55 years old. She is a member of Banco Comunal Nueva Luz, is married and has five children. It is a very hardworking and close-knit family. Her husband is a farmer and also works at cattle raising. Martha began her business five years ago. She has set up a store in her home, as well as an oven, and sells bread. Her work schedule begins at 6:00 am and ends at 9:00 pm. To her advantage, the store is in a very good location.

Martha needs the loan she is requesting to stock her business and invest in the purchase of products like rice, lard, beans, soap, detergent, dairy products, soft drinks, churros, sweets, flour, sausages, etc. She hopes that with the help of this loan, her income will grow and therefore enable her to assist her husband with home expenses. Her dream is to improve her store and have one of the most stocked stores in the area. Martha has requested loans from FAMA for four years and has fulfilled her payment commitments in a timely manner.
