Carmen Ignacia's story

Carmen Ignacia is 21 years old, is in a live in relationship and has two children. She lives in Ventanas, within the Los Ríos province, with her mother, her husband, and children, ages 3 and 11.

She’s a member of the “VRC LAS BRISAS” communal bank, located on the corner of “6 de Octubre” street and “Asad Bucanran Sector el Hospital,” within the Ventanas settlement. The members are general merchants.

Carmen has a small grocery store where she sells noodles, cookies, tuna sugar, salt, and cooking oils. She buys her items in Ventanas and sells them in her store. She is asking for this loan to buy more foodstuffs, like rice, lard, condiments, colas, water, and gelatin. This loan will help her buy more foodstuffs to increase her inventory.

Her dream is to continue forward and that things continue going well for her. Her challenge is her health. She likes to spend time with her children in her spare time.
