Irlanda Carolina
Irlanda Carolina is 28 years old and has been managing a kiosk for more than six years. She wakes up very early each day so that she can open her business. Most of her customers are children who attend school nearby. Over time she has gradually increased her capital, so this is not the first time she has received financing.

This loan will be used to buy candy, soft drinks, bread, cookies, juices, sodas, and other items. Her dreams include seeing her three children become professionals and making certain improvements to her home.
