Carmen Lisseth's story

Carmen Lisseth is 28 years old and lives in the family home with her children and her sister. She is known for being enterprising, responsible, but most of all, charismatic. With great effort, she has been able to maintain her business that involves selling shoes and lotions. Her sales are conducted by traveling around the main areas of the district where she lives. This business is her main source of income and her only job since her companion no longer lives with her. Carmen has been in this business for many years and has gained a great deal of experience. Thanks to her charisma, she has earned the trust of many people in the area and now has several established customers. Carmen works very hard to help her children get ahead since she is the only one earning household income. Her dream is to improve her quality of life and that of her family, so she strives to keep her business functioning in the best way possible.


Carmen decided to request this loan from Apoyo Integral so that she can invest in the purchase of merchandise, specifically a variety of shoes and lotions. This will help her remain fully stocked so that she can provide better service to her customers. Her intention is to meet the increased demand, improve her sales, and increase her income so that she accomplish her dream of providing her family with different opportunities in life.
