A loan of $600 helped buy perfume.


Carmen Elena's story

Carmen Elena C. D. C. is 30. She lives in Lourdes Colón with her husband and two small children.

She, like all working mothers, works every day. She sells men’s and women’s perfume. This way she can contribute, along with her husband, to the household expenses.

Carmen Elena is asking for a loan to be able to buy more merchandise. She has orders from her customers for a lot of products that she does not have. She will use the loan to buy these products and sell them to her customers.
