A loan of $1,925 helped a member to buy natural medicine and pharmaceuticals.

Los Emprendedores Group's story

Mario, 45, is a member of Los Emprendedores Solidarity Group. He's married and has three children. His wife makes a living selling new clothes and sandals. They live in the La Morita area of the city of Juticalpa.

Mario started his business eight years ago with the help of an uncle who later decided to work on his own. Currently he makes a living selling natural and pharmaceutical medicine. He leaves on Monday for the towns and communities to sell his products and returns on Saturday. The advantage is that he has his own customers; the disadvantage is that he runs the risk of being assaulted because he sells on foot.

Mario needs this loan to invest in buying medicines: natural, pharmaceutical, and to kill insects. With the support of this loan Mario will be able to continue with his business and improve his living conditions. One of his goals is to finish his house and have his own store.

Mario has been a client of FAMA for more than six years and he has made his payments punctually.
