Carmen has been working as a seamstress for several years. She also began selling beauty products such as perfumes and creams; and now she has a display case containing bazaar items. One of the difficulties of her house is that the front is not finished. It is currently made of cane which does not give her much nighttime security, so she needs to fix it.
Carmen is divorced from her husband and lives alone with her two children, ages 16 and 11 who are students. With the loan she plans to buy perfumes and bazaar items. One of her goals is to finish her house which does not have a concrete floor. Little by little, she wants to work on it to give her children a better lifestyle.
