Carmen Magdalena's story

Carmen lives in Orquideas. She is 36 years old. She is single and does not have any children. Carmen made the decision to look for work to get ahead and excel. Since no one gave her the opportunity to work in a business, she decided to save up her money to open her own store. Carmen’s sales have grown little by little until she now has enough customers. She does not have a set work schedule. With the loan, Carmen will buy various cosmetics, soaps, nail polishes, etc. Her goal is to have her own business downtown and to have the health to continue working.
