Carmen Miriam's story

Carmen is a 60 year old widow, and she has two grown children. She gets her income from selling cosmetic products at a mini variety store that she has. This has been her means of support after her husband died. Her business is going well for her.

Her dream is to increase her business by having a greater variety of products. Her work schedule is in the afternoons, when she sells her products to her neighbors, and in the evening, when she goes to her evangelical church.

She will use the loan to buy all types of cosmetics like perfume, cream, and cologne, etc.
