Carminda's story

Carminda is 36 years old, married and a mother of two. She is a modest, hard working woman with a great understanding of business. She lives in a very simple house with her family in the Bobonaro municipality. Carminda has a general store which is located close by her house; it is considered to be a very good place for this type of business where many people live nearby and always come to buy her goods every day.

She has been involved in business activities since 2015 and feels very comfortable running her business because she can earn money every day and support her family.

A 1,500 USD loan is offered to Carminda to help improve her business activity. She will use this loan to buy additional supplies such as milk, eggs, sugar, rice, coffee, biscuits, salt and candles. She hopes to run a bigger business in the future.
