Carmen Rosario's story
Carmen is a member of the Amor Divino (Divine Love) Community Bank. She is a 56-year-old married mother of six children. Along with her husband, Carmen makes a living making hand-made bricks in the community of Compañía. She sells the bricks in the same place and also takes them to work sites. Carmen is requesting a loan of 1200 soles, which she plans to invest in her home, which is concluding construction, by purchasing electrical installation equipment. Carmen's dreams are for her youngest children to be successful and to finish construction of her home.
