A loan of $825 helped working capital.


Anselma Del Carmen's story

Anselma del Carmen M. is 46 years old. She is a single mother. She has one son and helps in the public school. She sells food to make a living. She has worked in this for over 15 years. Her business started as a small table in the bus station market where she could only offer breakfasts such as bread, coffee, milk, donuts and juices. With enough strength and sacrifice, she was able to use her little earnings to offer lunches. This is how she obtained this business, with much strength and the wish to succeed. The loan that she requests is for working capital to buy basic grains to prepare her meals. Her wish is to continue running this business well and establish a large distribution from her home.
