Blanca Ubelia
Blanca, 42, is the single mother of two children. They live in the community of Sonaguera, Colón. She started her business six years ago with a small loan she got from FAMA OPDF. She managed to set up a business selling sweets. Currently she continues with the same business and also has a small grocery store, which she wants to expand. Blanca looks after the store alone and serves customers beginning at 8 a.m. and ending at 9 p.m.

Blanca needs the loan she's requesting to expand her grocery store business because her food sales are well established.

Her greatest challenge is being able to save to buy a vehicle to give her customers home service. Her dream is to set up a dining room and a mini-market in various locales. Blanca has been a client of FAMA for nine cycles and she has paid back all her loans punctually.
