A loan of $775 helped to buy bulk used clothing.


Odilma's story

Odilma is 40 and the single mother of two children. Her greatest challenge to date has been her husband's abandonment of the family. She started her used clothing business to support her children, and in the past six years, she has worked hard to grow her business. Odilma waits on her customers from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm. One of her disadvantages is having to rent her space.

She is requesting a loan to buy used clothing in bulk to stock her business and offer her customers more variety. She expects to increase her income through this investment and be able to pay her household and her children's education expenses. Her dream is that her children achieve professional careers and that she owns her own store so that she doesn't have to rent. This is Odilma's 17th loan cycle with FAMA, and she has made her payments on time.
