A loan of $1,100 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.


Herminda Del Carmen's story

Herminda is still running her grocery store; she’s introduced additional products that has led to increased sales and improved profits that she’s been using to do home improvements. Her husband works as a driver, always supporting the family. Of her three children, two work one as a taxi driver and the other selling CDs; the youngest is still in school. For her it’s a great satisfaction to have her family together with the mutual goal of covering their housing, food, clothing, education and health needs. She will use this new loan to buy basic grains, Coca-Cola products, snacks, meat, chicken, dairy products, a box of detergent, dishwashing soap and bath soap and shampoo, among others which are the items most requested by customers.
