A loan of $725 helped to buy a freezer.


Carmela's story

Sra. Carmela is 46 years old and has two children, ages 14 and 1. She sells “gelatina de patas” (gelatin made from cow’s feet) from her vending post located in the October 4th District.


This is her first loan with Emprender. Sra. Carmela will use the proceeds to buy freezer for keeping her products chilled. She has already had some of her products go bad. Her reason for requesting this loan is so that she can continue improving her business.


Sra. Carmela is a hardworking individual who is happy with the opportunity that has been given to her. This is the only business by which she is able to support her family.
