Unidos Group's story

Ms. Fanny is 32 years old and has 2 children who depend on her. She is married and lives with her husband. She is in sales and has had a grocery store for more than 3 years.

Ms. Fanny has a good client base because her business is located in one of the villages with the largest coffee production in the area, and she sells a little bit of everything for basic family needs. She is requesting this loan to buy rice, sugar, butter, sausage, milk, cheese, chicken, beef, beans, salsa, pasta, drinks, etc. to be able to meet her clients’ demands.

With the help of this loan, Ms. Fanny will buy a better assortment of merchandise for her business because the peak season for sales is coming, as well as the harvest of coffee and basic grains. She hopes this will increase her income to cover her family’s expenses and financial obligations.

Ms. Fanny’s dream is to give her family a better quality of life and schooling for her children.
