A loan of $450 helped to buy churros, sodas, soap, and cheese, among other products.


Reina Del Carmen's story

Reina runs a store and mill. She is married and has two children. They are 26 and 30 years old and not dependent upon her. She does not receive help from abroad.

She started her business as a source of income for her family. She works on a schedule from 6:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

She will use the loan to buy merchandise for her store. She will buy things like churros, sodas, soap, and cheese, among other products. This will allow her to improve the inventory in her store so that she can offer her clientele a diversity of merchandise.

Her objective is to improve her house and to get an extra mill in order to optimize her business activity of grinding corn.
