Carmen's story

Sra. Carmen has been a merchant for more than 10 years. She has been married to Sr. Sindulfo for more than 30 years. Carmen has a food pantry that is well-stocked. She says that she has many customers as a result of attending to her business. Carmen tries to treat people well because she is known in the neighborhood. In addition, her husband has a horse-drawn cart from which he sells fruits and vegetables. He sells every day and travels throughout the area. Carmen and her husband help one another.

She says that she has always worked hard to maintain her family. Thanks to God, all of her children are grown and have started their own families. The only people living in her house now are Sra. Carmen, Sr. Sindulfo, and their five-year-old granddaughter named Andrea.

Carmen is requesting a loan to buy baked goods, vegetables, dairy products, meat, and other products to restock her food pantry. She is very hopeful that this loan will be of great help.
