Carmen Amelia's story

Carmen is 50 years old. She is a widow. She lives in the community of Jesús del Gran Poder. Her source of income is a grocery store which she has been running for 5 years. She tends her store at the same time that she cares for her grandchildren while her daughter goes out to work in the fields.

Carmen wants to obtain a loan to invest in products of primary necessity that complement [the products in] her store, allowing her to have variety in her products, such as seasonings, condiments, dressings, tuna, sardines, oil, flour, rice and sugar in bulk.

Carmen is grateful to Kiva for believing in her and offering her an opportunity to continue fighting in life.
