Nubia Del Carmen's story

Nubia owns a general store, located at her home. She sells basic grains, dairy products (milk, cheese, cream), and sweets, among others. She buys some of her merchandise at the town market and the rest from distributors. Nubia lives in her hometown. She fought bravely against adversity to finally own her shop and stock it with basic products needed for the home. Nubia needs a loan to buy more products to face rising demand, as she has more customers since her business has grown. She is married and has two children, who go to school. She is very happy with all the loans she received as she tells us they have been very helpful to make her business grow.
