A loan of $1,000 helped to buy furniture.

Carmen's story

Carmen buys used furniture and sells new furniture. She’s been in this business for three years. She sells near the La Pampa Market where she has her sales stand. She lives in someone else’s house under an “anticrético” contract (a transaction whereby a property owner requests a "loan" from you in exchange for housing, which must be paid back to you at the end of your contract. If your loan is not repaid, the property owner loses the property to you.)

Her husband is in Brazil where he went to work sewing. She has two children in her care; she sees to their education and sustenance. Her work is very demanding. She has to travel three days to other cities to buy the furniture for her business.

She indicates that the loan she was granted is of great help because this money will allow her to increase her working capital buying furniture for subsequent sale. She is a very hard working person who is grateful to the institution for the support provided.
