In her own words, Mercedes describes how FUNDAMIC has helped her: "FUNDAMIC is the only institution that has given me any support since 1997. It has helped me not only financially but also boosted my morale. During this entire time, FUNDAMIC has had its doors open. In addition to giving me immediate financing, it has also given me guidance on how to buy and sell more efficiently and has been a huge personal support to me. I have invested the loan proceeds in my business and have been able to pay it back without any problems. My business activity has grown significantly thanks to FUNDAMIC."
