Kenia Del Carmen
Kenia Carranza is a dairy products merchant. She’s been in this type of business for about a year. Her point of sale is in the market of San Rafael del Sur. She decided to set up this business thanks to her brother’s support who motivated her to open her own business.
The loan granted by Ceprodel San Rafael del Sur was to expand it because they currently also sell in some of the communities in the municipality to grocery store owners and to a local cooperative which is why Kenia expresses her special gratitude for the opportunity provided to improve her commercial activity.
