A loan of $1,000 helped purchase diapers & a display cabinet.

Oliver Del Carmen's story

Oliver del Carmen is 39 years old and lives in Primavera de Duran (a periurban area with a deteriorating ecosystem). After she separated from her husband, she opened a store where she sells diapers because she had to take care of her two children.

Since opportunities were lacking and she needed to support her children, Oliver del Carmen invested her savings in diapers and sold them to acquaintances. Through her effort and dedication, she gradually earned more money to invest into her business. She now works with her oldest daughter, who is 18, selling diapers. Each packet of diapers sells for $9.00.

In order to continue her business, Oliver del Carmen will use her loan to buy a display cabinet and more diapers. In the future, she wants to expand her business by offering other products.
