A loan of $1,050 helped to buy grains, drinks and canned food.

Carmen Rosa's story

Carmen is a 58-year-old woman who has a lot of plans for the coming years to make her store thrive. Her story began when she used to work in a shrimp farm and gathered together money to build her home. She saw the need to set up a store and, through her hard work, she achieved this. She does not have any problems, is not married, and has two daughters aged 32 and 20, two granddaughters and an 'adopted' granddaughter.

Carmen's dream is, with God's help, to continue serving her community and to continue increasing her sales so that she can earn more. She would like this loan to invest in her store, buying grains, drinks, canned food, candies, etc.
