Yolanda Del Carmen's story

Yolanda del Carmen C. is 63 years old and lives in the department of Usulután. She lives with her eldest granddaughter who is her only companion. She is a very responsible person and has always worked hard to provide an income.

For seven years Yolanda has been investing her savings in a fresh produce store which she began as a way of having a steady income in order to provide the best for her granddaughter who helps her out in the business.

Yolanda wants to use the loan to buy products such as cold meats and sausage, detergent, bread and other products. Even though she has had the store for several years, the earnings she has obtained have always gone toward household expenses. Therefore the loan will be beneficial for expanding her business.
