Carmen Cristina
Carmen Cristina P. G. is 46 years old. She is married and has 4 children. Two of them are married. The other two are single and they are 24 and 20 years old. They help their father in his tire repair shop. Her husband’s name is Irineo and he is 50 years old.

Carmen’s goal is to obtain a loan to buy more merchandise for her business selling clothing. She has had this business for a little over 3 years. She started it out of necessity and to contribute for the family expenses. She has commented to us that the clothing business is a good option if one knows how to run it. There is a lot of competition and she updates styles and clothing designs every day. For her it is not difficult to repay her loan because she has work every day. She makes her sales as a street vendor, and sometimes her route is a little difficult. She doesn’t have a fixed place of her own where she can offer her products, and that is why she has to move from one place to another.

Among the challenges that Carmen faces is her vision, however her problem doesn’t keep her from working and making progress in her projects.

Carmen’s biggest project is to establish her clothing business permanently in an adequate space where she won’t have to walk or carry around her merchandise. She hopes for good health—she doesn’t lack for desire and motivation to continue working.

She is grateful to those who can provide even a grain of sand to help finance her loan, and to the Foundation, and to Kiva for supporting the projects of those who are in need.
