Carmen Lorena's story

Carmen is 36 years old. She is married and has 3 children, who are her main priority. With the loan, she will buy the needed inputs to stock up more her mini supermarket. She started this project more than 3 years ago, and she wants to give her neighbors and customers a better quality service and more diversification in her inventory.
Her goal is to satisfy the needs of her customers and to generate more income for the well being of her family. This is the first loan she has received from FUDECOSUR. She does not have other loans in state banks, but FUDECOSUR has given her the loan with easier terms and a lower interest rate.
