A loan helped to buy a machine for making rotisserie chicken.

Carmen's story

Carmen is 45 years old. She is a married woman with children She lives in a place where she pays rent that is acceptable, considering the number of people in her family and the characteristics of the house.

Carmen is a cook and for the last 5 years she has worked preparing and selling lunches. This occupation involves a lot of sacrifice, since she has to travel in the very early hours of the morning to get to her business, which is located at a great distance from her home.

Carmen would like a loan to buy a machine that will allow her to make rotisserie chicken. This loan can help her to considerably increase her income, and because of this, she hopes she can receive this help.

Carmen gets help from her husband; thus, she is not alone in her business venture. She is a hard-working, industrious person, who prepares the food with high standards of hygiene.
