Carmen Beatriz's story

Carmen C. is asking for a loan to invest in a store that she has had for 9 months. While her business for many years has been to sell traditional clothing, she had the opportunity to acquire this store and she would like to be able to provide more products that people like to buy such as fruit, corn, beans, sugar, and oil. Also she would like to sell school supplies because the store is near the village school where she lives.

One of her goals is to serve her customers well and to gain their loyalty. She says that she continues to work hard even after being sick and having recovered. She wants to provide a good life to her daughter. Even though her daughter is only 3 she is preparing for her daughter’s future.
