Carmen is a single mother of three children. Because she’s alone she must work to support her home and help her children. She sold clothes for a long time but did not do too well because many of her customers did not pay her on time so she changed her line of work and started a small grocery store at home. She sells a little bit of everything there like bread, vegetables, meats, etc. The business is doing well at present and she earns enough to proviD. her children with a better dwelling and a good education.

On the other hand, Carmen also does occasional work caring for sick people. This occupation generates extra income. The loan will be of great help to her. She will buy groceries to supply her customers.
