A loan of $300 helped purchase condiments.


Carla's story

Carla is a computer science student and hopes to finish her studies. She is 20 years old, single, and lives with her parents. Carla sells packaged condiments that she buys from wholesalers and sells them at the regional fairs, where she travels to three times a week on the days she has free. Her loan will be invested in the purchase of condiments.


Carla is a member of the Communal Bank “Granito de Mostaza” (Grain of Mustard). What she likes most is that her group encourages her to save and that her money earns interest.


Carla dreams of establishing Internet booths for rent.
