Karol Azucena
Twenty-eight-year-old Karol is married and has three children who are 10, 7, and 4 years old and all of whom are in school. She was only able to study up until the 7th grade. Her husband is a farmer and they both support their family.

Karol has been selling pupusas, fast food, and soft drinks for five years. She learned this business from her mother, who has always had a convenience store, which is where Karol sells her products. It is located about 20 m from her home. Karol gets up every day at five in the morning to make breakfast for her family, get her kids ready, and then start working at her business, where she stays until seven at night.

The loan will be used to build a snack bar. She will buy 800 bricks, 30 bags of cement, 3 quintals of iron, and sand, and she will pay for labor.

Her dream is to see her children become licensed professionals so they can defend themselves in life, but for now she wants to build a snack stand for her work.
