A loan of $675 helped a member to buy ingredients to make candies.


Salud Group's story

Esteberta, 46, belongs to Grupo Solidario Salud and is the single mother of a daughter. She is hardworking and wants to succeed so that she can keep helping her daughter and grandchildren. She started her business three years ago while working at a cafeteria; she decided to go out on her own and risk the challenges ahead.

She now manages her cafeteria by herself, working from 7:00 am until 8:00 pm. Paying rent for the space is a disadvantage for Esteberta. She is applying for a loan to buy ingredients to make candies. The loan will allow her to keep supporting her family. Her business goal is to own her space and not rent; her dream is to own a house. This is Esteberta's sixth loan cycle with FAMA, and she has made her payments on time.
