Carol Jeannette's story

Carol lives with her husband and has two children, ages 6 and 8. She and her husband work to maintain their home.

Carol runs a hardware store; she started this business as a way of supporting her family. She works from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. She learned the business working in other hardware stores.

Carol is requesting a loan for the purchase of rebar, cement, and paint, which she will sell to her customers. This will help her to improve her inventory and improve her sales.

Her aspiration for her business is for it to be profitable, thereby improving her family's quality of life.
