Carolina needs a second loan to buy gifts because Mother’s Day is celebrated in the month of May and she wants to vary her sales with balloon and floral arrangements because her business is located in the center of the village and is quite sought after on these dates. She also wants to invest another part in the tortilla sales she does at home. She wants to buy corn, firewood and also a griddle and she’d like to be able to earn extra income selling "granizadas" (shaved ice treats) outsiD. her house. Her greatest wish is to always continue to grow in her various sales as well as raise her children who still go to local schools.
