A loan of $1,375 helped to maintain a die-cutting machine.


Carmen Alina's story

Carmen is 51 years old and is an enterprising woman with many dreams to achieve. Ten years ago she began building her own business dedicated to die-cutting services for boxes. Today she feels like this has been the biggest success in her life since this activity has allowed her to improve her family's living conditions. Her greatest dream is to continue growing in the local market and to position her service.

Presently, Carmen lacks the economic resources to carry out maintenance on her machines, which is why she is requesting a loan which will permit her to revive her business and to increase the volume of sales.
