Carmen Jacinta's story
Carmen, aged 31, is single and has a six year old child. She has a neighborhood store selling staple food goods. She is a good mother, and is responsible and hard working. Her store is in the Mutualista area of Santa Cruz, where the climate is sunny and humid, and the temperature is between 21 and 35 degrees centigrade. Carmen has a dark complexion and brown hair, and she speaks Spanish at work. She lives with her young child in a rented apartment which is supplied with running water, electricity and a sewage system. In her store she sells staple foods such as: bread, sugar, eggs, cookies, milk, soft drinks, water detergents etc. The store is situated on the main street, where there are no other similar stores. Her business is well known because of the wide range of goods: "It is the only store in the area so I have many customers, because I offer seasonal products...". Her dream is to own her own house in the city, and she wishes to expand her store by buying a freezer to store soft drinks now that the weather is hotter. This is her first loan with the institution in the two years that she has had her store. This is why Carmen is requesting a loan to buy a freezer to store soft drinks.
