A loan helped to purchase an industrial washing machine.


Carmen's story

Carmen is 39 years old, separated, and the mother of two girls (one is 7 years old, and the other is 15). Carmen lives with her daughters, is the owner of a modest laundry business, and has been in business for over 8 years now.

She wants a loan to purchase an industrial washing machine. In this way, she will be able to improve her services.

Carmen hopes to be able to pay for a private university education for her daughters in the future, and for this she works so much.
