A loan helped to buy materials to restore and remodel her home.

Karina Del Carmen's story

Karina del Carmen hopes to obtain another loan. She is 27 years old and married. She lives with her husband and her son, who are her top priority.

She wants the loan to buy the materials necessary to repair and improve her house, in order to provide more security for her family. She hopes that this investment will afford her family a better quality of life and more economic stability, and that she will continue to grow as a person and a microentrepreneur.

This is the third loan Karina del Carmen has received from FUDECOSUR. She has never received a loan from a government-owned bank, but FUDECOSUR has offered a loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
