A loan of $400 helped to buy potatoes, cabbage, tomatoes, plantains, carrots, and onions.

Carolina Del Carmen's story

Carolina is asking for a new loan because she wants to stock her market stall with fresh fruits and vegetables. It is getting to be the time of year when there is greater demand, and for this reason, she should be economically prepared with a stock of potatoes, cabbage, tomatoes, plantains, carrots, and onions, as some examples.

The effect that has been reflected in her business has been an improvement via her investment, so that she now has a fully stocked shop. Her family has been able to maintain its financial stability. She has been able to stop selling atol (a traditional corn gruel) over the past few months, and she now only sells the most profitable fruits and vegetables in her stall.
