Carmen Sara's story

Carmen lives with her husband and children in a house that she owns. Carmen is a very responsible and hard-working woman who has succeeded in getting her family ahead. She owns a store that sells foodstuffs such as bread, refreshments, cooking oil, vegetables, beans, corn, sugar, fruit and snacks, among other items. Her business is located in her home and with the profits she makes from her sales she's able to afford her household expenses. Carmen requests a loan which will allow her to stock up her store so that she can better serve her customers. That way she'll increase her sales, which is a priority for her as it will bring progress to her household.
