Carmen Monserrate's story

Carmen Monserrate is a woman who daily strives to get ahead despite the adversities she is experiencing. Even so, she does not give up and continues with her business, which is a store. Thanks to the previous loan, she was able to reactivate her business and she invested in some groceries, beverages, cleaning products, and more.

It is for this reason that she is again asking for a loan with the end of being able to increase her business, making the most of the approach of a very productive season.

She will invest this loan in the purchase of dairy products, snacks, rice, noodles, detergent, soap, etc. Her dream is that her business will continue growing.
