Carmen Griselda's story

Carmen Griselda A. D. R. lives in the town of San Martin in the San Salvador district. She is 40 years old and lives with her husband and three minor children. Carmen receives financial support from her husband, Alejandro, who works as a driver.

She has been managing her own business for 6 years. Her main clients are her neighbors. Carmen operates her business out her home, which is located at the main entry to the subdivision. She sells lunches every day, and she is situated in a convenient location where many people can come visit her. Carmen would like to increase her production and expand the variety of her meals, similar to dishes you would find in a restaurant containing rice, beans and other ingredients. This is why she is requesting this loan.
