Los Progresista Group's story

Solanyi is 24 years old and lives with her two daughters, 8 and 6, who attend classes normally. Thirty months ago, her husband died in an accident. She lives in Borbon and for two years she has had a small business selling food, which has helped her pay the expenses for the studies, health and food for her daughters.

This is her first loan in FODEMI and she is sure she her business will grow because she will buy a small stove, a canopy, two tables and eight chairs. With these items, she will be able to offer more comfort to her clients.

She used to cook with firewood or charcoal for which she often had to pay large sums of money to acquire.

She comments that it was a bit difficult to recover from the loss of her husband since it affected her daughters so much.

Solanyi wants to have her own house in five years where she can place her business in a more comfortable fashion and offer a better space for her daughters. She wants to help them in a university course of study so they can become professionals and achieve a better lifestyle.
