A loan of $250 helped to purchase noodles, rice, beans, detergents, and bread.

Vilma Del Carmen's story

Vilma is always tending to her store. These days, she is interested in a new loan that will allow her to purchase more items to offer more variety in her store, non-perishable items such as noodles, rice, beans, and detergents, as well as bread, snacks, and cookies. Her desire is to maintain her customer base.

She says that her previous loan helped her to see a positive effect in her earnings through the purchase of merchandise which increased product availability for her customers, which in turn provided her with a better opportunity to make sales and be able to have more stability for her family.
