Angela Del Carmen's story

Angela is a hard-working woman who wakes up early to open her small business, a stationery store, in which she has been investing, little by little. She now also sells products such as clothes and cosmetics to ensure that she has enough to pay the household expenses and can help her children stay in school. Her husband supports her, but he earns very little as a teacher. Nevertheless, they find ways to get by. This is the eleventh loan that Angela is requesting, and she will use it to invest in buying products that she needs for her business so that she retains her customers.
