A loan of $450 helped to buy zinc, sand, cement, and crossbeams.

Carmen Patricia's story

Mrs. C. sells lottery tickets. The business helps her provide financial support to her mother, who is single. She's seeking another loan from CEPRODEL to buy zinc, sand, cement, and crossbeams so she can build a little room in her house for her mother. Right now the house isn't partitioned at all and she wants her mother to have privacy. She doesn't have any children and her only expense is supporting herself.
