A loan of $1,100 helped to buy basic staple goods.


Carmen's story

At the age of 55, Carmen works selling basic staple items in her store. She works every day from 8am until 10pm. The business project arose due to her sector’s not having said service and she took advantage of the opportunity to generate income and help her spouse with expenses.

At present, she’s asking for a loan to buy stock merchandise to improve her sales and to introduce new lines of products requested by her customers. She hopes to continue growing in the sector and to enjoy better living conditions.
