Olivia Del Carmen's story

Olivia is a trader and she has two children. Many years ago she succeeded in opening a corner shop where she sells a variety of products.
Thanks to her husband and her children’s support, she has improved her selling service, and now, thanks to the loans obtained from this institution, she has sped up the growth pace of her activity, as when she started the amount of product she sold was small, but this has improved with Afodenic’s support.
Since what she mostly desires is to keep her sales at balance, she uses her loans to invest, and with this one she will buy 5 quintals (1 quintal = 46 kg) of rice, 3 quintals of beans, sugar, maize, oil drums, dairy products, meat, chicken and a variety of other products, in order to succeeded in increasing her sales, thus improving her incomes and being able to pay for basic expenses and to cover her personal necessities.
