but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Carmen Melissa's story

Picoaza is a community rich in production of greens, grains and tropical fruit (cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplants, watermelon, melon, etc.) for local consumption, to sell and to use during religious celebrations. They have a large variety of native dishes with the tastiest ceviches. Carmen is 22 years old. She lives with her common-law husband and they have 2 children ages 3 and 6 who attend school. Her partner is a businessman. She is also a home owner.
She grows small birds at a small farm out of her home. During the season, she buys large quantities of chicken to raise for two or three months, until they are ready to be sold, which is when she delivers them to some stores around town or she also sells them by the pound out of her home, still alive, to salespeople who reach her at her home.
She's been doing really well, as this has been a way to make some money from home.
She will use this new loan to buy chicken, feed and antibiotics. This is her 6th loan with Grupo de Credito and she likes them because they are quick and without hustle.
Her dream is to make it to have a large poultry farm.
