A loan of $400 helped to buy clothing and accessories.


Carmen Isabel's story

Carmen, 42, is the mother of two children, ages 17 and 13. She and her husband work hard to earn the income they need to support their family. Because of her duties as a housewife and the care her children require, Carmen decided to make a living selling catalogue merchandise to her friends, family members, and neighbors. Currently she wants to combine this job with selling merchandise (clothing and accessories), so she's requesting a loan to make this investment and improve her sales and her family's quality of life. Her biggest dream is to give her children a good education.
