More information about this loan
This loan is part of FAMA's program to support young entrepreneurs in Honduras between ages 18 and 30. Financing will be targeted to vulnerable young people who are identified using an income study. These are individuals who have operated their own businesses for less than a year but have gained experience through working with family members or taking a training course. All of them need capital to expand their new businesses. Accordingly, loans provided through the program have three-month grace periods to help entrepreneurs get established before they need to start repaying. Recipients of these loans will also receive financial education through FAMA's development program, including courses on budgeting, savings, loan management and negotiation. Loan sizes may be larger than normal to help recipients cover the high upfront costs of launching a business.
