Carmen Alexandra's story

Carmen Alexandra is 39 years old; she is a single mother with two children, ages six and two. She works hard to offer them a better life. When Carmen realized that there were not many commercial opportunities in her sector, she started her own store. She works alone in the store every day from 8:00am to 6:00pm, also working in a school sometimes.

Carmen is applying for this loan to expand her business and, in this way, help her two children finish their studies. Her dream is to finish the building of ehr home during the next five years.
