Zoraida Del Carmen is a 47-year-old microentrepreneur who lives in the town of Turbaco with her three children and her partner. She started her business because she needed to support her family and to improve her life. She has more than 17 years of experience selling sweets, cookies, snacks, and drinks, which are mostly purchased by students and neighbors from the area.

Zoraida has strengthened her business by opening it up to other opportunities to make a profit. She also sells merchandise from catalogs. Thanks to her sacrifice and dedication and her family's help, she has been able to improve the condition of their home and the business.

Zoraida wants to change the appearance of her business and improve her product display. She also needs to increase the inventory of products that she offers for better profitability. Her dream is to have her own store location. Please support her with a business loan. It is sure to be successful.
