Oneyda Carolina's story

Oneyda Carolina is 21 years old. She lives with her husband and her son, has her own home, and has been working in the used clothing and shoes business for a year, as a traveling sales person.

Oneyda Carolina goes to the neighborhoods of San Lorenzo, on her motorcycle, to sell these products. She is a young woman who has good ideas to raise above poverty as she comes from a very poor family.

Oneyda Carolia is asking for a loan in order to buy some more clothing such as blouses, pants, shirts, etc., as she has several orders from her customers. With the support from the loan she hopes to improve her business and therefore her quality of life.

Oneyda Carolia hopes to use the profits from her sales to install electricity in her home so she can open a grocery store.
