Carmen's story

Carmen is a responsible and enterprising woman that helps making bread. She has worked for several years now in the bake shop and is doing very well. Carmen continues to run a small independent business, raising farm animals such as hens. This time, she is requesting a loan to buy hens.

Carmen is a member of the communal bank "Ricchariy Puririsun," which is part of Asociación Arariwa. She feels grateful for the opportunity she has received and promises to pay the installments according to plan.
