Sra. Carmen is an individual who possesses many values, such as sincerity and honesty. Those who know her say that she is a friendly person and works very hard at her job. As a result, she has gained the respect of her neighbors and family members.

The loan she is requesting from FODEMI will be used to expand her small business by enabling her to purchase fabric in large quantities so that she can produce clothing. With the Christmas season approaching, she will have a good opportunity to sell more and continue growing financially so that she can help her children.

Sra. Carmen’s dream is to have her own sewing workshop where she can produce clothes with the aid of industrial machines. She would be able to sell what she produces in the same place, thus allowing her to increase her earnings so that she can help her children move forward and provide them a good education.
